Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Photoshop help.....

    First want to say Hi and this is my first post here. Hopefully not my last


    Was wondering on the best way to export transparent gif's? is there a trick? mine keeps getting distorted around the edges even tho I set the output to max res....hmmm...suggestions....

    It's not really possible to export perfect transparent gif's. They pixelate the edges to achieve the transparent effect.

    Depending on your particular use for them, consider PNG or TIFF.

    .GIFs don't have an alpha channel. Well, they do, but there aren't varying degrees of alpha it's either transparent or it's not. It's alright for pixel art and if you need it to work in IE, but for other uses, use .PNG

    transparent gifs with edges are a nuisance

    I put the background of the webpage into the psd file and then export the non transparent image into gif. this seems like it is transparent ... works if you know the background ....
