# Cutting Image Background with ImageMagick

Here is a small sequence of commands to cut the image of background (given that background is a solid color):

```ORIG_IMAGE_NAME=green.jpg;
NEW_IMAGE_NAME=green-trans.png;
TMP_COLOR=`convert \$ORIG_IMAGE_NAME -crop 1x1+0+0 txt:- | sed -n 's/.*\(#\S\+\).*/\1/p'`;
convert \$ORIG_IMAGE_NAME -bordercolor \$TMP_COLOR -border 1x1 -alpha set -channel RGBA -fuzz 30% -fill none -floodfill +0+0 \$TMP_COLOR -shave 1x1 \$NEW_IMAGE_NAME```

Just change the first to vars. You can also adjust the fuzz percentage if needed.
