Here is what I want to do. I have been testing different ways to do this and none have been successful so I thought I might just come back here and ask. I have an image of a server with a white background; normally what I would do is save it as a gif and make the white background transparent. In Paint.NET, I am not sure how this is done or what would be my best option. Than I would create my banner, in this case I wanted to gradient the color from a navy blue to a black at the bottom. The white background would then become the blue to black background; the server would than reflect in the black portion of the background. Could anybody take me through the steps to accomplish this?
