Transparent backgrounds


Recommended Posts

:? I was just reading the answer to my question on this forum, had to register to make a comment, now i can't find the original post that i was on so here i am submitting my comment under my own topic. SO... i want to change the background on an image to transparent and when i did what was instructed about using the magic wand, selecting just the background, cutting, saving image and poof, supposed to be a transparent background. Well, that didn't work. I tried it with several different levels of "tolerance" as suggested, still get the exact same image when I save it. I go into my document, paste the new image with the supposed transparent background and the image looks absolutely no different than when i started... still white background. Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

What file format are you saving in?

Only .GIF and .PNG file formats support transparency.

 

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.

Glad to help! :-)

Also, keep in mind that browsers like IE6 do weird stuff with .PNG transparency. It doesn't support partial transparency, so it'll look odd.
