ok this is for photoshop
first is your picture a bmp or tiff to start with, if it's a tiff then you will add another layer of alpha. ( i alway go for bmp better quality )
so you have a solid color background. ( check )
different from any color on your bmp picture.
Click the mask ( little ants,running around ) then on a drop down menu click simular, then from the same drop down click save
click the ok box that comes up.
Now if you look bottm left you will see a box with path, layers, (sorry doing this from memory ) click on these tabs till you see little eyes (should be 4.
then click to see an eye on the bottom one ( alpha )
the back ground should go black ( if it does not PM, you will need to change something )
now go to file save as ( your title ) tiff ( save as a tiff)
then when in plugger, select all the defaults.
i hope this helps.
