    Is it possible to have transparent color in jpegs? If so, I must know how! I have Paintshop Pro and access to PhotoShop if need be.

    I like gifs but I want more colors...I'm having difficulty getting PNG transparency to work right.

    How would one do it on a PNG?

    if your using photoshop, when your picture is done, go file save for internet, and in those options you can choose Png or gif and the transparent options!

    gif = 8bit/256colors & transperant
    16bit = 65536colours
    jpg = 24bit/16777216 colours sinnce having this many colours it's not 256x better then 16bit as u thought it would be
    png = 32bit/16777216 colours/with transperancy

    there is hardly any differnce between 24bit colours and 32bit
    it's just that 32bit supports transparancy.

    hope that anwsers alll your questions

    Thank you, Ice-Freezer!

    If IE would support transparency properly on a PNG, it would be perfect! Mozilla displays them just fine. :mad:

    Mozilla also supports MNG files, where-as Ie doesn't ;) ..then again, most people don't even know that MNG exists.

    Perhaps there's an add-on/patch/plugin that enables IE to render PNG properly, I mean it really is an issue that should be addressed, because it's plain annoying :D
