Frequently Asked Questions

How to make JPGs transparent with Luminar Neo?

To make a JPG transparent in Luminar Neo simply head over to the Layers tab. There, in the Layers Properties, select the Masking tab and choose Background Removal AI. The AI will detect the main subject of your photo, easily letting you remove the background for a quick JPEG transparent background.

Can I make a JPG background transparent without affecting the main subject?

Of course! Convert to a JPG transparent background without affecting the main subject. The mask will be applied automatically. If you want to refine the mask, there is always a refinement brush.

Does the process of making a JPG transparent affect image quality?

Yes, making a JPG (or JPEG) image transparent can affect its quality, particularly if the image undergoes repeated edits or alterations.

When you save an image as a JPG, it typically compresses the image data to reduce file size. JPG compression is "lossy," meaning it sacrifices some image quality to achieve smaller file sizes. This compression method can introduce artifacts or blurriness, especially in areas with fine details or sharp edges.Each time you edit and re-save a JPG image, it undergoes compression again, potentially leading to a further loss of quality. Additionally, converting a JPG to a format that supports transparency (like PNG) may lead to a larger file size due to the differences in compression methods.

Is it possible to adjust the level of transparency in a JPG image?

No, it's not possible to adjust the level of transparency directly in a JPG image because JPG does not support transparency. JPG is a "lossy" compression format that doesn't retain information about transparent areas. In a JPG file, the transparency information is discarded when the image is saved, resulting in a solid background color.

If you need transparency or varying levels of opacity in an image, you'll need to use a format that supports transparency, such as PNG, TIFF, or GIF. These formats allow you to specify transparent areas or adjust the level of transparency for specific parts of an image.
