    Problem with making a icon background transparent

    Hello community,

    I am totaly anti-talented to graphic design, so I had the need to ask a professional.

    I have an icon, 16x16 for TeamSpeak server, that has white background, this, right here:

    The thing is, that when I use a program called PhotoFiltre (curently I can not spend money for anything better), and I take a tool, that replaces certain color with transparent, I set the best sensitivity and everything works. The white background vanishes. The problem is, that when i put this photo with transparent background on the team speak server and I use a dark background, there are white lines in some parts of the edges of the image.

    Now how can I achieve perfect quality, so it is going to be without these lines? I just want to take that white background out and have perfectly lined picture, just like it is supposed to be.

    This is how it looks like, you can see those “lines” or how can i call it.

    Is there some better tool for it? Or what do I need to use?

    In advance thanks for any help.

    The icon has something that is called anti-aliasing (smooth edges). In that case, removing the background perfectly is not possible because at the edges, the colors are alpha-blended, so they contain information on the color (e.g. red) and the background (e.g. white), which cannot be separated.

    You can use images with alpha channel (PNG images can come with alpha channel) or you can use SVG, which always has proper transparency (note that there are no converters that can convert images to SVG).

    Basically, the question has absolutely nothing to do with TeamSpeak.

    Well, there are systems that do a 'best guess' at converting an image to SVG.
    It's basically attempting to redraw the image, and most times it's hit or miss. More fucked the more colours you have

    I've used Illustrator's trace edges a few times, pepehands
