I use some free online tools like, and to handle my designs and make their backgrounds transparent.

First, create your designs on and save the image to your computer. Check out the tutorial on how to create T-shirts using Canva Here

Next, go to and upload the image to lunapic. To upload the image, click on the “Browse” option as shown in the screenshot below.

Then click on the “Edit” option at the lift top corner. A drop-down menu will display with options.

Among these options, you will see “Transparent Background”.

Now, click on the Transparent Background option.

Wait for it to load, then click on the background of your image or design.

See screenshot below.

Now once you click on the background of your image, Lunapic will do the magic and give your image or design a transparent background. And example is shown in the screenshot below.

That’s it! You are now done with making your image background transparent.

Next, download the new transparent background as “PNG” file format to your computer.

To download the new image, click the “SAVE IMAGE AS PNG” at the to of your image or at the lift top corner among other image saving formats

Now that you have successfully created a transparent image background, is time to upload it to your Print On Demand Sites like Amazon, Redbubble, etc

But unfortunately, you cannot upload and put it up for sale just yet. The reason is because Lunapic drastically changed the image size and make it really small for printing which will ultimately produce a very poor printing quality.

To solve this problem, we will have to use another free too resize the image. And this will take us to the step two of this tutorial.

Step 2

Resizing your Transparent Background Image with resizeimage

This is the final step and is very short and easy.

Now, to resize your image, go over to and upload the image you have downloaded from Lunapic with a Transparent Background.

To upload the image, click on the upload image at the number 1 option on as shown in the screenshot below.

Next, scroll to number 4 and change the image size to the desired size. See screenshot below

In the case of Amazon, the approve image size is 4500 and 5400 respectively. So change the image size base on the size you want or what the Print On Demand (POD) site you are uploading it to required.

You will find that to get a specific size for your image is practically impossible. For example, Amazon which specifically required that the image must be in the ratios of 4500 and 5400 respectively. And because automatically give the other ratio once you type in a figure to change the size of your image, you won't be able to get the exact ratio you want. 

But I was able to solve this problem after many tries. Follow the steps below to give your image the exact size that you want. 

How To Get The Exact Ratios (Sizes of your image) Of Your Image Fast

Here is how:

Right there on resizeimage, you will see the option

"Keep Aspects Ratio"

Under the resize your image option, next to the bar of changing the size of your image.

That's where the solution is!

By default, the "Keep Aspects Ratio" is ticked.

Now, to get the exact ratio (size)  you want, just untick the "Keep Aspects Ratio" option

Now type in the ratio you want, and the system will obey you!

Finally, scroll down a bit and click on the resize image option and wait a few seconds for the image to resize. Thereafter, click on the “Download Image” to download your new image size to your computer free!

You are now done with the whole process and all set to put the finished design up for sale on any POD site.

Whenever you’re ready, just visit the POD site you want to use and upload your transparent background image and put it up for sale.
