How to remove a single color from image & make it transparent

Recommended Posts

I want to remove the white from this image, I've adjusted the Levels so the whites are completely white & blacks are completely black. I've gone to the selection tab & tried the 'Select sample colour' but i can't find a way to make it work. I've spent the last 3 hours looking at youtube tutorials, FAQ's & forums yet i have no idea what i'm doing right or wrong, please help.

If this is to overlay an image you could use Blend mode: Multiply this effectively makes white transparent.

Blend mode: Screen does the opposite, that knocks out the black.
