Remove white photoshop action.
I thought of making this when somebody asked how to remove their white background on the forums, and it took me far too long to write a paragraph about it.

Anyway, here you go! It let's you take away any white background from, for example, lineart. It's geared toward lineart, but there are other uses.

Download and extract; a ReadMe instruction .txt is included.

Included are three separate actions:
The first deletes all white
The second deletes all white, then darkens the lineart
The third removes all white by masking

Have fun. ^_^


The sketch in the preview image is mine. :)

Wow, thanks so much for the DD. :heart:

It works, but also removes the colors on my draws, making it black and white.

It basically is a simplified script for something you can do anyway, but it still comes in handy. Well done for what it is.

make sure there's a blank white layer just under your lineart layer.

You have to actually run the action - open your Actions palette in Photoshop and press the little triangle button to "play" it. :)

I've been using PS for over 8 years and I didn't even know about these 'actions' we can download, thank you so much! This really saves me a lot of time rather than having to go through all the steps for every pic I scan myself. Really appreciate it <3

I saved it as .zip... it should just open in Explorer if you're using Windows.
What do you mean by "you can't convert it"?

well I use Safari and it doesn't open the ZIP so I tried to convert it into a data which it can open. but it didn't work...

It doesn't need to be converted - just opened.
Try using 7zip - It's the best utility I've found for Windows, and it has an OSX version as well: [link]
