hi, guys, how are you? i was just wondering if you could let me know how to properly use 'alpha channel' where to put it [under or over which layer in PS 7.0] and how it really works. im just a little confused about how to use the whole alpha channel thing so if you can explain it to me in your own simple words that would be great. thank you!

Alpha channel is another channel that is added to a picture to make any un-used picture transparent. For example, take a yellow smiley face vanilla marine badge. A badge is 64 x 64 square so the smiley face would show up as a yellow circle in a white square on a space marine shoulder pad. But if you add an alpha channel to the picture , it shows up as just a yellow smiley face on the shoulder pad, minus the square part.
