hello. I just made a new avatar and sig out of boredom. I've never used the transparency feature yet in photoshop and attempted it for my avatar so it would be rounded on one side. i followed the instructions in the photshop help to a T and it still displays on the webpage with a while portion where i wish it'd be transparent. I can't seem to figure it out. if anyone's around and bored and could answer the question that'd be appreciated. thx.

I'd like to know too. This thing's pissing me off to no end. There's not one single tutorial out there that works for this effect.

I don't know if it halps, but I give try: 1.work with layers! Change your background layer to working layer (double click on it), so when you cut unneeded pieces you get checker texture underneath (that stands for transparency). 2.save the file as Gif.. Gif is the only low-size format that uses transparerency. Voila!

Depends on how you see that, sometimes it takes some time for your question to be answered, ofcourse I am fully aware that the people their aren't being paided and don't wait all day just to answer your question, but having patience was never one of my good things. :lol:

Still like Donitz said, next time it's probably better to ask in the Graphic section.

Btw Omni, is that a BF2 model I see their? ;)

You gotta save it in a .PNG file.

Well, that was at first meant for bf42, but as we lacked skinners it didn't make in-game (as the whole load of sherms)

But it should make into FH2 (after some alterations).

Ahh. I made the picture and I made a clipping mask, covering the unwanted portion of the picture (at right, with checkers in photoshop) with the clipping mask giveing me a peice that looks like a circle was snipped out of it. That was my mask, following the tutorial as best I could and yet it doesn't work. Thanks Omni for the advice. I'll try to save it was *.gif and see what happens.

Edit: Agh! I revisited the picture and save it as *.PNG file and that made the part that is marked with a clipping mask go from white to grey once I uploaded the picture again. The same thing happened when I saved it was *.gif file. So saving the file as those extensions changed something but not what I was hoping lol.

Here's a pic, showing the clipping mask in the Paths list. work.jpg
