well if you have photoshop - why not do it all in photoshop

use the magic wand to select the purple - then delete

the pictures rather small, so i'm not really sure what you want to do

make a " siggy " ???? sorry explain

Do you have a larger version?

OK so do as I said
in photoshop
copy as a new layer
select the purple with magic wand
inverse selection
feather by .5 pixel on that size
delete
then delete the original background layer
you should have one layer
purple face on a transparent background

yep - almost as I described
made a copy layer
worked on the copy layer

i increased the tolerance on the magic wand to 50, clicked on a bit of the purple deep colour - after the selection and went round and added any bits that had been missed because a pixel or two where white.

inverted the selection
feathered by 0.3
deleted

then deleted the bottom layer

left with purple on transparent - hence its background is gray here.

saved as gif to preserve transparency - if save as jpg the background will go white
