    I did some work to my current WIP. During this late night venture I saved the black border and needed it to be transparent for my website. Can someone walk me through making the BG transparent? All I managed to do was make it. :(


    I suck at this lol.

    I'm confused, you said that you need the black border to be transparent then you want the bg too to be transparent? Which is which? :)

    if there is a black border around the image you should be able to "fuzzy select" it and then cut. be sure your image has a alpha channel. click layer>transparency>add alpha channel. then select and cut the border.

    it might help if you post the image you're talking about.

    i don't want the black bg, where i want it on my site is black, so the bg needs to be transparent.


    the said image is hyperlinked to the word WIP in my first post.
