|The blue background is still visible when you view the image using PSP. But open the image in your browser and presto...that awful blue is gone!|
|Here are a few additional tricks that will help you make flawless transparent GIFs.|
|Round-shaped objects have jagged edges when you create them using 16 or 256 colors mode.|
|You can create smoother, anti-aliased edges in 16 million colors mode. But anti-aliased edges make it harder for you to isolate all of the background color. There are usually a few pixels around the edges that are a slightly different color than the one set to be transparent. It is very hard to get rid of these pixels without disturbing the smooth edges.|
|The solution is to plan ahead. If you know the color of your web page, use a similar color for the background of your graphic.|
The stray pixels are still there, but now they blend into the web page's background.
Sneaky, but effective.
