how would i remove the white background from this image in a way that retains the blurry transparent border? just simply using the magic wand in photoshop looks like garbage
>>

You need to add a layer mask and paint out the white with a soft brush to produce the best results. Alternatively, you can create a clipping path using the pen tool and adding a feather effect after you make your selection active, however, this can be very time consuming if you don't know what you're doing.

>Further detail on layer masks as follows
Open the image in Photoshop—it should show as ”Background” in the layers panel. Click the lock icon to the right of the thumbnail to unlock this layer.
Below, you should find a rectangular icon with a circle in the centre of it. Have your newly unlocked layer selected and click on this icon to add a layer mask.
With the layer mask active, go to your brush tool, and select a soft brush from the brushes palette (you can increase or decrease the hardness of the brush using the slider).
When the layer mask is active, the foreground and background swatches default to black and white, respectively. You can alternate between these by tapping X on the keyboard.
>Black removes
>White adds
With the black swatch active, simply paint away the areas of the image you don't want. If you unintentionally remove a part of the image you want to keep, just switch to the white brush to add it back in.
It's good practice to use quick keys to speed up your work so use the [ and ] keys to decrease and increase the size of your brush as you go along when you need to get into those tighter areas or if you're removing large chunks.

easiest way to do it is find the source file without the effect and then re apply the effect on a transparent background, save as .png and you're done

So what's the best way to accomplish what OP wants huh?

Trying reading, fucktard. >>355404 is the best way.
>>
>>355464
He's not gonna learn anything from that. You're just sourcing the image with an already transparent background. If you read what OP said, he's asking for a better way of removing the white background than the way he's doing it.
>>
>>355466
There's nothing to learn here. It's going to take FOREVER to cut that image out, and it will still look like shit compared to the other technique. I'm saying that his method of removing it is incorrect and he should be doing it the other way.

>FOREVER
Sure.

Technique? Are you retarded? There's nothing going on your way you fucking idiot.

that's a 5 second fix with a brush, you don't have to go full bob ross mode about it
if you are arguing that recreating it from sscratch is easier/faster, JUST... and if you are blending mode joe, god have mercy of your soul

I know. It was just my way of appreciating your method.

"Nothing going on your way" doesn't mean anything faggot. Try to form a real thought before you respond next time, please.

Anyone who sits there and tries to cut the image out like a retard can be safely called incompetent and is wasting time. That's what you are, a waste of time.

Actually, the solution they presented is the most straight forward, will take the least amount of time, and yield the best looking results. You are the fucktard here, fucktard.
