Can I make a transparent background for this pic?

I'm trying to use this picture in just the oval shape. Whenever I flatten the image I get a white background and the shape is now rectangular again. I want to use it on a website (just the image, not the white background) Can I do that in Adobe CS2? If I place the image on a colored background of my site, it looks just like the thumbnail does right now.

Thanks,

Shelley L.

jpeg doesn't support transparency. Use .gif or .png instead.

Re: Can I make a transparent background for this p

hi,
First my reply is very similar to Billfrey...
also I am a novice but maybe my reply can help with additional info

the short answer to your question is YES you can do that in your photoshop! i do this all the time...

1. jpg does not save transparency info... so you can't use that format!!
2. Now png can save transparency info but I don't think it can be used in a website because it not a webpage graphic standard.... but I maybe wrong...
3. so your best format . for transparency, to use for a website is gif!!!

the main thing is that before saving, make sure you have created the transpearency areas you want... you should see a checkerboard pattern, this indicates your transparency.... and then do a save as and save in gif.
you'll probably get a couple of windows.. and just make sure in the index windows you have transparency check marked and whatever other setting you want... that it..,,,,
