    ugly border around trans gif

    I have read your article titled:
    How to Eliminate the Lines Around a Transparent GIF in Photoshop located here http://www.mediacollege.com/adobe/ph...ent/matte.html
    This process explains how to do it on a solid back ground but I am trying to place it on a gradient background.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated - here is a look at the webpage background I am trying this on:http://achtx.com
    I am trying to put it up in the top section.

    And I have attached the logo itself in case there is anything wrong that someone may see
    Thanks in advance

    There's no way to do that with GIFs as they can only be matted against a single background colour. You have two options:

    (1) Create the whole image with both the gradient and logo.
    (2) Use a PNG file instead of GIF.

    Personally I'd go for #2.

    Thanks a bunch Dave - worked like a champ.
    Another question if I may, When saving as a .png - I have the option of png-8 or png-24. Can you or someone tell me what is better to use and why.


    Thanks again

    The 8-bit option is limited to 256 colours. It may result in a slightly smaller file size but 24-bit is generally the better option as it allows more colours.
