TOTD# 41: How I created transparent logo of GlassFish using Gimp ?

I followed the original instructions with Gimp 2.4.5.
  1. Open up the original image in Gimp. The original image has an embedded color profile and needs to be converted to RGB. Opening the original image shows the following message:



    Click on "Convert".
  2. Select "Tools", "Selection Tools", "Fuzzy Select" as shown:



    and click anywhere on the white background. There are numerous types of selection tools available but mostly the background needs to be made transparent.
  3. Select "Layer" menu item, "Transparency", "Add Alpha Channel" as shown:


  4. If "Add Alpha Channel" menu item is disabled then proceed to the next step.
  5. Select "Edit" menu item, "Clear" to make the selection transparent.
  6. Finally save the image with default settings. Make sure to give the extension as ".png", just specifying the file type as "PNG" does not automatically provide the right extension. And the transparent GlassFish image is available here.
A complete set of GlassFish buttons (including these images) are available here - feel free to use them!

How do you intend to use them ? :)
