    thats because of the pixelation. if you were to zoom in on those pixels, you would see they are not true white. go in to the image and use a selection tool to highlight the object, ctrl copy and paste into a new transparent image. if you still have pixelation , you will have to go in manually and erase them.

    Doing prep work to images before building a logo in TLC can be a major help. Having even a simple photo editor program that offers a cropping can save you a lot of frustration.Oddly enough Capture Wiz , a screen capture program, offers some great tools to edit images with and so user friendly.

    By just cropping as much of the white from your desired image beforehand can produce better results.Often building or layering text ontop or around an image it isn't necessary to remove white.
