Kill White is a Photoshop Filter that actively removes white from an image (unlike the ‘Multiply’ blend mode), perfectly leaving the rest of the image, whether the image is black-and-white or color.
However, this is not simple masking. Pixels that are partly transparent are altered so as to only remove the white portion. Shadows and gradients will remain in the image, only white is removed.
I made this Filter with my good friend Yael Martiz.

Pixel Bender is the new Filter system for CS4 and CS5 (64 or 32 bit). This version is much more accurate and generally has better results.
