how to keep semi-transparent parts on transparent backgrounds in .png form

Recommended Posts



i'm here to ask a question, idk if it's possible but,


how can you keep semi-transparent parts in .png files :0


for example


the Drop shadow plugin looks cool.


but it doesn't work effectively if the background is completely transparent

i saved it as a .png file then bam


the shadow is gone (except for the non-transparent parts of the shadow)

Would you mind posting an example image of what's happening?

As far as I know, .png images support a full range of transparency. Make sure, when you're saving, you have bit-depth set to "Auto-detect"
