  2. The next page will be where you “Clean Up” your image. The default tool that is always on when you first land here is the “Select & Erase” tool.

    Click one time on the background and it will be gone. So easy.

    Now click the rest of the places you want the background gone, like inside of letters or images.

  3. The next tool is the “Erase” tool. This acts just like a pencil eraser.

    Notice that there is a slider so you can increase or decrease the size of the eraser. It works amazing!

  4. The last tool is the “Crop” tool. It can crop the image so that you can get rid of parts of the image you don’t want. Even if the image is in the middle of the larger image. Just place your cursor where you want to start the crop and drag it to where you want it to stop.

    After you have cleaned up your image, click on Preview and it will show you all the mistakes. Just click it again and you will be back where you can continue cleaning. So simple.
