    Unfortunately the only formats that allow transparency on web pages are GIF and PNG.

    The good news is... I think the solution to your problem is here.

    PSD is a proprietary format and although many image manipulation applications can open them, web browsers usually cannot.

    If you use PNG with alpha channel transparency, you will not have the same issues that plague the binary transparency of GIFs.

    Does that also mean that you can't have a transparent background with a .bmp? I'm trying to turn a scanned signature into a transparent background for use on an Oracle form (this is why is MUST be in .bmp)

    ...sounds like there is no hope.

    Generally speaking, that is true. There are some very complicated workarounds that may work for some people in some circumstances with some proprietary software, but in general bitmap images do not support transparency.

    Remembering of course that my original answer was specifically in relation to web pages. Of course there are other formats that support transparency (eg PSD) but these are no use on a web page. For web pages you're pretty much stuck with GIF or PNG.
