Never really got into the whole transparent background thing so far. Is it a big earner for you? If so is Photoshop the best to remove backgrounds to a "professional" standard?

For me I didn't make much from Adobe doing these images. Here is how to do them via Photoshop

yes is worth but only if cut out by hand = clean

I think I had my best success with them on Canva, but then their submission process got all weird and I think they were almost all rejected after that. It almost always takes longer than I think it will to clean them up to my standards so it is probably not worth the time for me. I am sure there is a better way to do it.

Yes, if you cut them clean with 200% zoom on your outlines, they do sell. However, the time that takes and patience to do that - you can upload lots of other images and make the same or more money on them.

Contributors who do best selling png work are excellent at it: shadows, grass, fur, hair, dust, raindrops, explosions, elaborate food, etc. if you will learn how png behave on various different backgrounds, they will sell. If you cut them automatically and they will end up with a halo against white or black background, they do not sell.

 I know some designers who are wicked fast at clean png. I never got that fast, even my first png was 30 years ago.
