    Photoshop gradient question

    I have a transparent psd with a really cool red gradient from the top, with a white gradient up from the bottom, and a transparent center.


    How do i maintain transparency so it can be used on any background?

    thanks, new to PS

    What's the medium? IE Is this to go an a web page, printed document or video clip?

    I'm not completely clear on what you mean by "maintain transparency". It sounds like your transparency is being lost when you apply your image to whatever medium you're using.

    Basically, we need more info

    save transparence

    You can save the PSD file as ".PNG" format,so you can use it in any background.

    Hello, I know its old, and i dont mean to hijack, or bring a thread from the dead but i searched online, and I have a situation a bit similar to this.

    The medium I am try to apply to is video using the option to add a logo in virtual dub. When I apply it to a webpage, it is infact transparent, but when i apply it to the video, its not. Ideas anyone?

    Transparency is quite different on the web and on video. In video you usually need to make some effort to achieve transparency by using whatever processes the editing application has.

    I don't really know anything about VirtualDub but I believe it has two ways to do transparency - transparent colours and alpha channels. Try checking the help file for these things or asking in the VirtualDub forum:
