How can I edit this specific .eps file into a transparent image on photoshop?

I’m kinda new with Photoshop so please bear with me.

I found this .eps file on freepik that I want to use for personal use.

I opened the .eps file on Illustrator and everything looked fine there, then I tried removing the background and only moving the effect part to photoshop, but without any background the image turns to this:

A Weird Black Appears

I noticed that if I simply add a grey background on photoshop and make the circle have a screen blending that it looks similar enough to what it should, but as soon as I remove the background, it goes back to having that black thing around it.

I need this to end up being a transparent image to use elsewhere, I could simply look for something else similar, but I kind of want to learn how to make this work, there must be a way.


Photoshop lacks a colour to alpha filter which would be ideal for such an edit. Although there used to be a plugin for it, I’m not sure if it’s still around but if I remember correctly it only worked on 32bit versions of the software. The most recent version of Photoshop is only 64bit, so I don’t think it will work. I suppose you could do a search for it if you have an older 32bit version of PS installed.

Anyhoo, the easiest way by far to fix this is to export the image you currently have (as a PNG obviously).

Open it in the free software GIMP, click Colors > Color to Alpha, choose black as the colour, hit OK. Then export as PNG.

Here’s one I made using GIMP’s Color to Alpha filter
