OT - Help with GIF file Picture
Posted by: OttawaCorvairGuy ()

I need some help with this picture. It is a GIF file with an odd back ground.

I want to save it as a JPEG with a white back ground - if at all possible.

I the two different programs I have and was not able to do it.
One program showed the picture as a solid black square.

Thank you

I did it in adobe illustrator as a jpg export, the GIF you had did not have a background at all that is why the weird background.

Thank you Tom. I did not try Adobe. I herdly use it and I only have the stock / standard one.
I'm not sure it has all the bell and whistles to do a lot with it.

Matt, I tried MS Paint. Maybe I over looked how. But I was not able to do it.

The file I saved opened in black and I was not able to find a way to change it.

White background with black font and diagram is much easier for me to see with my aging eye sight.

Matt, Here is another one I tried and tried to change the background color (using MS Paint after your early post about using MS Paint) and I could not do it.

Have no clue. I turn it on, use it, and turn it off. Then repeat. Grin

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I was not able to open the last drawing in Adobe to see if I could change the background to white.
