    In Photoshop, there are two ways to create an image with a transparent background:

    1. Starting from scratch: 

    Within Photoshop, click File > click New > In the Background Contents field, choose Transparent

    You are free to design whatever elements you require (text, shapes, lines, etc) and they will appear with a transparent background.

    When you're done,  Save for Web as a .png file. 

    2. Existing Image

    Within Photoshop, select the part of the image that you want > copy and paste it into a new page in Photoshop > double click on the background to edit the name > change the opacity to 0%. 

    After you've done this, you should see a checkered box for the background. Click on Save for Web and make sure to save it as a .png file. 

    Finally, upload it to your Wix editor!

    Please also make sure that the image has no skin. Click the image > click Change Style > click Edit Style > choose the first skin called No Skin Photo.

    If you do not have Photoshop, you can create a transparent background using www.online-image-editor.com. For further instructions, please click here
