I am making a html5 game by using Construct2. When I create a sprite, it still has unused components (because the added images still has background color)
Example:


When other object move across it, I see clearly its blue background...

So I want to remove the blue background, help me and thanks so much :)

Just use an image editor to erase the background to transparency. The built-in editor can probably do it too.

@Ashley , what about a background eraser ? the image editor didn't get updates for months ... Maybe a magic wand ?

No need for a new tool/update.
Use the color fill tool and set the "Alpha" value to 0.
It will replace the background color with transparency.

Thanks :)
I fixed it. Using magic tool in photoshop to cut backgound layer and set it's opacity t0 0% is the solution.

This might work, i used it on one of my sprites.

1) Click The Sprite
2) Go to the Blend Mode   bar
3) Turn it into addicitive

See if it works.

What about a "replace color"? I saw it on GM, IGM, EGM and Stencyl. By the way, IGM only replace the #FF00FF to transparent.

If you use anything other than an eraser with a soft edge, or a tool that can delete backgrounds taking alias into account, you'll end up with either jagged edges, or a line of the old blended color around the edges.   The best way I've found to remove a background color is to use something like Photoship's "Select->Color Range", then hit delete.
Jack of all trades, and master of some.
