:wve:

I was just wondering about getting an avatar which has no background. Made it on Paint Shop Pro X 10 and now I'm going to save. Which file do I save it too? Is it PNG?

Thanks in advance. :tmb:

Thanks in advance. :tmb:Why not .GIF?
Try both, then compare. I think the .gif will be better.

Joseph, does IE7 support PNG alpha channel (transparency) just like FF1.5 - 2 ?

IE6 shows it with white bg, FF1.5 - 2 with transparent bg.

Oh yes that is a known inconsistancy between the browsers. Remember Elen's purple Avatar in the past? When the forum changed software and thus background colour, she ran into this problem. That purple flower was a .png perfectly designed for the old grey background. On the new forum background the flower's background didn't fit anymore and it was impossible to make it transparent for IE. Converting it to GIF made it horrible. Since then i know.
