    I have made a few monograms for various projects...now everytime I try to use them I have a white background behind the monogram. I am trying to make the image into a circle or just put the image on postcards ect. I tried to use photoshop but, I am totally clueless with that. My mongram is in powerpoint right now. Any suggestions? I have spent hours trying to figure this out...HELP!!!

      I'm not sure if this will work, but it is worth a try!

      1. Save your logo in ppt as a jpeg
      2. Bring up a new slide in ppt and use the circle drawing tool
      3. Right click on circle and choose format autoshape
      4. Go to Fill (where main color is) and scroll down until you see fill effects
      5. Choose picture tab and press select picture (find your logo jpeg) and press ok
      6. Logo should appear in circle
      (you can get rid of the outer line of the circle by going into auto format, Line, scrool down on color and choose no line)

      Hope this helps! Good luck!

        Another thing I thought of may be to just use the drawing tool bar.

        1. Go to view, toolbar, drawing toolbar
        2. Highlight image and then click on the set transparent color tool (2nd from the right side)
        3. Bring down transparent tool while pic is still highlighted and click it on your pic

        Let me know if neither of these work! Good luck!

        Christi :) ...again!

          I've always had luck on this type of thing when I use microsoft publisher rather than powerpoint. If you need help, PM me.

          Good luck!

            I use publisher when modifying too, but I just tried the ppt way and I think it will work too.

              If you're using photoshop, make your background (everything behind your design) transparent, and save as a png.

                Thanks for all of your help. I tried all of your suggestions...What worked for me was to put the mongram in publisher and then do what Christie suggested. I think the way I was saving it was messing me all up. When I saved it as the jpeg it worked!! Thanks again. I even tried photoshop BUT I am so clueless when it comes to that program that I just gave up!!
