make the white behind 50% opaque color transparent
as you can see I was able to make the background transparent by 'select by color' + 'add alpha channel' + 'remove selected area' but I also need to remove the white behind the 50% opaque reddish orange flames as well, i cannot select the white by 'select by color' or 'magic wand select' or any of the selection tools because of the issues of the white / reddish orange mix of opacity, so i need help removing this white behind the part opacity color, can someone tell me how to do this?

RE: make the white behind 50% opaque color transparent
pressing ctrl isn't working to deselect... I've never had problems with ctrl+select before but apparently it isn't working with a select all function, it doesn't matter what I ctrl+select, it just selects the area i lasso tooled... is this deselect function compatible after a select all function?

Ye, ofnuts has good ideas / tuts.

Anyways, more simpler tut (but idk will it be good at end), when you select that white background by "select colour" then go to Select > Grow and grow it by ... Idk... try, lets say, hmmm, from 4 to 10 maybe? try all that, i dont have that image so i cant rly see.
