hi,

i am using MS excel 2002 and i am in the midst of creating a calendar using excel 2002...
but when i import the calendar to photoshop CS2 the background is white.

is there anyway i can create a excel sheet with transparent background ?

I intend to have the dates (months and days) on a transparent background lying on top of a pic in photoshop...

hope someone can help....
thanks

Try the following (no guarantees it will work well coz not too sure what you are doing):

- arrange your calendar in Excel
- go to print preview
- do a screen cap (printscrn)
- paste the screen cap as a layer in your photo
- use magic wand to select the white background
- use Select Similar to select all the white background
- hit delete

Perhaps you can furnish more info and we can finetune the steps. ;)

If your calender has black wordings with white background, do a printscreen as what they say. Paste in PS as a new layer. Change the layer blending mode to Multiply mode. The white will disappear.

1. select colour range how to use ?
2. the method suggested by M3lv1nh0 using multiply mode worked perfectly too.... but why it works and what is happening here?
