Re: Good images gone BAD!

Also, how do I get a sample of the existing background when it actually was furnished by the service that i am using? Unless I need to actually go online and right click to save image as?

Re: Good images gone BAD!

I saved your background and used it as the image for the foreground color sample
when you have your transparent RGB like you want it.. leave maybe a half inch transparent border around it ..
go to Image>Mode and choose Indexed color
In the box that pops up make sure Transparency is checked AND
In options there is a place called Matte... choose Foreground color
click OK

Go to File>Save for Web... select GIF have transparency checked... click SAVE

Then upload your gif and put where you want.. it should blend right in with no jaggies.. if your foreground color sample was the same as where you put the gif
