Hi, I am trying to make the white background in an image transparent. Can Pixelmator for iOS (iPad) do this, if so how?

Hey Nigel, the answer is yes! Here's how I'd do this:

1. Choose the Color Selection tool (tap the brush icon > Select > Color Selection)
2. Set the selection mode (in the top-right corner) to "Add to"
3. Drag to select all parts of the white background
4. Tap Done
5. Tap any part of the selected area and choose Delete
6. Tap Deselect

Hope that helps!
