making backgrounds transparent

Recommended Posts

Question, I am trying to make a background transparent, I know how to strip the background out using the Magic wand and eraser tool, however my saved jpg image shows up in Dreamweaver and most image viewers as having a white background, even though in Paint.net it shows as transparent background.

Am I not saving the file correctly, my understanding of transparent background is that the background should not have any color visable at all and the color of the page should show through.Here is the image, when this is opened in a image viewer or opened in any HTML page it has a white background, the effect I would like is the image to have no background at all

Only the PNG and GIF filetypes support transparency. Save in one of those (I recommend PNG, or download the OptiPNG plugin and use Optimized PNG) and it'll look beautiful again!


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
