My png banner isn't transparent when it should be???

Post by Parrot on July 23rd 2010, 4:11 am

Okay, I have a PNG file with a TRANSPARENT background. Here it is:

http://shiningepiphany.com/images/seflt.png

I set that as my logo image but it's not showing up as transparent?

My forum: http://shiningepiphany.users-board.net/forum.htm

Any ideas on how to fix this???

I used Gimp 2 to make the banner, if that's what you are referring to.

The problem is with the image. The flare is too big and it goes off the image.

  • Original
  • Simple

I believe so.

How would that cause a problem with the transparent part of the image? I don't care if the flare is cut off, I just want the dark colors to blend together.

What do you mean? My image is already transparent.

well if the flare is cut of the image will abruptly end causing that problem. It's just bad image editing, it's not Forumotion's fault.
