    Background help

    I have an image that i made and I need it for web purposes. The picture, when put on a web, it shows the white background. how would I make the image's background (white part) be the web's background color so it won't show the white part but show the image part.
    -Thank you

    I need to know what program you used to make the image. But in most good editing programs, there is a option for the background to be transparent. That is what needs to happen. If you tell me what editing program your using, I can give you more info

    Thanks,
    Another problem I'm having is whenever i try changing an image to transparency mode, the image gets pixelated and the image isn't the same as it was originally. Anything that could make this happen?

    On this page have a look at the "Indexed Color" screenshot near the bottom. In this window, try different types of matte until you get the best result.

    Re: Background help

    I too want to post an gif image on the web. I want a transparent background without having any color at all on the image background.

    Therefore all I would have to do is just place the image on any background color without having to change the image background color at all since it would be transparent. I want to avoid any color on the background image period. Hope someone understands what Im saying? LOL I am using Photoshop X.

    Sorry it's not working. To get any more help I think you'll need to register and upload the image so we can see what's happening.

    Have you tried our transparency tutorial? After that, if you have any specific questions post them here.
