Anyone know of a filter that does this?

I've recently been looking for a plugin that removes black from photos, but takes the black component out of any image and replaces it with transparency.. ive found a similar filter here ... te-plugin/
it does the same thing but removes white. does anyone know of a filter that can do the same thing using black instead of white? thanks a heap :D

I made some google search and found this:

Would that be the solution? I haven't examined so closely, if similar filter could be found from here too. (?) :)

Best regards,

yup i tried that out while i was looking for something too.. if you adjust the settings, it can do the right thing kinda, but the picture still loses alot of detail. although ive created an action using the remove white filter, it inverts the layer you're working on, removes the white, and inverts it back again ;) works a charm! thanks alot for the help though :)

You're right, how in the world I didn't find that solution just now, it is really simple and I have used it myself many times in different cases. Taking first a negative of the image, then doing effect and negativing back... That gave me good laughs, again I thought too tricky... :D
