Transparent BG Tutorial by reapersun Transparent BG Tutorial by reapersun
Just a quick tutorial I threw together to explain in detail how to save an image with no background :D

Note: DA doesn't fully support images without backgrounds and will fill them in with a black background in compressed versions. However download and full view usually still look alright, and most other websites will display them properly (photobucket, etc).

Really helpful, but I have a weird problem...when I upload to dA (with the transparent bg and everything) the thumbnail of the deviation background comes up as....black. D: Also, it has unwanted markings here and there which shouldn't even make sense because png. doesn't show it at all. :( Any suggestions, like does this wear off in a short time, or is something up? ><

OOOhhh! so it has to be .PNG! I always saved it as .JPG and even though It showed no background on Photoshop, it made a white bg once I saved it as .JPG. Now I know, thanks!

Thank you! Although I have one question. It asks me whether or not I want to interlace it. Should I interlace it?

Interlacing doesn't affect the final image, just the way it looks when only partially loaded in a browser.


An un-interlaced image will just load from the top down, whereas an interlaced image will load a rough thumbnail at first and then progressively step up the quality.
