Transparent bmp maker

World's simplest bitmap tool

This is a free browser-based utility that converts an opaque bitmap to a transparent bitmap. You can specify which color will be made transparent in the options. You can use the color picker tool, enter a color name, or an HTML hex color value. You can also use fuzzy color matching mode to select similar color tones, and to make sure the right color gets converted to transparent color, see the changes in the preview mode. Created by graphics designers from team Browserling.

Color to Match
Specify the color that you want to remove from a BMP. The removed color will change to transparent. Use color name, hex code, RGB, or click color palette.
Fuzzy Color Matching
Specify the fuzziness percentage from 0% to 100%. The higher the percentage, the more shades of the color will become transparent.
Show Matching Colors
Show the matching colors that will be made transparent in black color and all opaque colors in white color.
Transparent bmp maker tool What is a transparent bmp maker?
This online program creates transparent areas in a bitmap image (an image with .bmp extension). In the options, you can specify the color you want to replace with transparency and you'll instantly see the preview of the BMP with transparent pixels in the regions that match this color. The transparent color can be entered using its name (for example "yellow" or "pink"), a hexadecimal code (for example, "#ffe100" or "#0b03ff"), an RGB code (for example, "RGB(230, 126, 34)" or "RGB(142, 68, 173)"), or selected in the color palette that can be accessed by clicking on it next to the transparency color option. If you need to match similar shades of the given color, use the fuzzy color match option. In this option, you can enter the similarity coefficient, expressed in percentage. The higher the fuzzy percentage, the more similar color shades will become transparent. For example, with the yellow color and the fuzzy percentage set to 0%, only the yellow color will become transparent but with the fuzzy value of 30%, besides yellow, colors like corn, lime, amber, citrine, and cream all will become transparent. The most common use cases of this tool are removing the background of bitmap sprites and creating digital signatures and stamps. For more accurate results, you can enable the preview mode. In this mode, the transparent and non-transparent colors will be shown in black and white.

Transparent Mega Man Sprite
In this example, we load an 8-bit bitmap that contains a Mega Man sprite and strip its reddish background color. To do it, we enter the hex color "#E02040" in the transparent color field. As this is the only solid color we need to delete, we leave the fuzzy matching value at 0%.

Make Sky Transparent
In this example, we remove the background from a BMP image of a hot air balloon. We target the bluish color of the sky and select the visually closest color with the color picker. The picker automatically enters the selected color in the color-to-match field (in RGB format). Since the color of the sky changes from light blue to blue, we increase the fuzziness threshold to 10% to match all these color tones in the background gradient.

Remove Background of Signature
In this example, we demonstrate how to create a digital signature from a BMP image. To do it, you'll need to sign a blank sheet of paper, take a quick photo, and upload the image to the input field of this tool. To demonstrate it in action, we use Walt Disney's signature. We type "white" in the transparent color option and set the fuzzy match to 15%. These values make sure that the white background of the signature gets removed along with the gray islands of shadows. The transparent bitmap now contains only the black outline of the ink, which can be inserted in electronic documents to sign them.
