go just inside those top left hand corners so as we don’t have any gray marks there i’m going to hit save i might save that to my desktop and i’m going to call that one crazy hands that’ll do it i’m going to hit save now next thing we need to do is we need to go over to this side here now this one’s called remove dot bg now if you go to remove dot bg forward slash upload you’ll be able to get it
