Do you have Paint (any kind of Paint like Paint or Paint.NET) because you can make it transparent.

I am not sure about Paint. But on Paint.NET you can make it transparent by clicking on the wand tool and click on the stuff around your character. Then you can press the scisscors (cut) at the top.

Hope this helped.

Default How to make a transparent picture in Gimp. :D

I am not sure if someone else has already made a guide for this, but please don't post saying "This is my guide!" or "Someone has already made this guide." Thank you!

Click the image to open in full size.
1. Take your screenshot of your character and open it with Gimp.

Click the image to open in full size.
2. On the top toolbar, click on Layer


Click the image to open in full size.
3. Then click Transparency


Click the image to open in full size.
4. Click Add Alpha Channel


Click the image to open in full size.
5. Click the Select By Color tool (or Fuzzy Select tool, which is the wand right next to the select by color. I like the select by color better, it's easier and faster.)


Click the image to open in full size.
6. Click on the background color.


Click the image to open in full size.
7. On the top toolbar, click Edit.


Click the image to open in full size.
8. Under Edit, click Clear


Click the image to open in full size.
And you should get something like this.


Click the image to open in full size.
9. Keep Selecting By Color and Clearing until the background is completely gone.


Click the image to open in full size.
10. Then save your picture! (File >> Save As…)


Click the image to open in full size.
Name it whatever you want, but make sure it's saved as .PNG!


Click the image to open in full size.
Here is your result!
