You have to add an alpha channel, that is all black, except around the letters which should be white.

I usually just take the original one and make a new one with it :lookaround:

Also: Why don't you put all your questions in one thread, rather than have 20 going at a time :rolleyes:

omg, photo shop has got to be the worst P.O.S I've ever used. It's like they try to make everything counter intuitive. At any rate can someone explain this like they are talking to someone who never uses photoshop. I mean like step one... open the file... step two make the alpha thingy... step three... you get my drift... I cant believe how difficult photoshop is to use.

Ok working with the FOC Menuback_overlay.tga. 1. Select the layer, using a black color, and paintbrush, cover the SWFOC logo. 2. Select insert text tool, under paintbrush. Select text, color, size. Place text box, and add your text. 3. In the layer box select channel, your see rgb channels, and an alpha layer. Highlight the alpha layer, and hide(eyeball) the rgb channels. Use black color, and paintbrush to cover the white where the logo use to be. Then unhide(eyeball) the RGB channel. Now you need to zoom in on your new logo enough to make clean edges, and paint a white color to make your new logo visible through the alpha layer.
