if you use this one i would right click on the white layer >alpha to selection> and then go over with white, i just copied image from the forum so its a bit grainy on the white.

RE: Radio Station Image
im sorry here ill try to do better.

ok...so the background is white, ahh i think i see, ok so

start a new layer (the paper on the left bottom corner of your tool box)
put it under your working layer (just drag and slide it under)
right click on your working layer in the toolbox
go to the top of the right click menu to merge down
now click on the working layer in tool box
and grab the select by color tool (the finger pointing to three colors)
click on the white
now you should have it selected the marching ants will be surrounding it
now all the white should be gone...unfortunately your letters white too, but
you can make another layer
drag and slide that one under your working layer
take a paint brush
enlarge it with ] and get the area of the letters
you can then use [ to make your brush smaller to get the corners
i hope this helps better than my others, im going to do the white part on the file above and re upload it for ya with just the sign its gonna take a couple seconds mostly for upload time, ill be right back.

im sorry its not letting me upload, do you have the original file? and would you mind posting it? oh and if you want to save it with the layers you can save it as .xcf then it wont merge all your layers.

RE: Radio Station Image
Original Sign

I think I should start fresh with the original file which will have the highest resolution. Do the transparent BG first, then create my logo.
Input please?

RE: Radio Station Image
If you start from an SVG (vector graphics) and only add text to it, you'd better be using InkScape, which is meant for vector graphics instead of Gimp.

An intermediate solution is to import the SVG in Gimp as a path(*).

(*) My 2.6.8 doesn't import the SVG file properly but my 2.7.2 does, so hopefully you may nto have problems with 2.6.11/2.6.12.

RE: Radio Station Image
If I am going to start completly fresh, should I convert this to a JPG, BMP, TIFF, first, so there is not a ongoing issue? This logo (highway sign) will be used on Business Cards, Letterheads, Flyers, the header of the website, static stickers, etc.

RE: Radio Station Image
If you use Gimp, keep it as XCF, with a size in pixels big enough to print 300DPI on about Letter size (about 2400 pixels wide). Export to PNG/PDF/EPS or else when needed.

If you use Inkscape, use SVG, and export to PNG/PDF/EPS etc.

RE: Radio Station Image
OK, made it simpler for you, just start with the attached file. You only need to add the two layers for your call sign and frequency. Otherwise call for help.
