Chapter 10. Preparing Images for the Web > Making a Web Image Transparent

Making a Web Image Transparent

In just a few simple steps, you can preserve the transparency of any image using options available in the GIF formatting settings. Once transparency has been set, an image of any shape (even one with a transparent cutout) can be placed on a Web page and made to blend seamlessly with its background (Figure 10.25).

Figure 10.25. The image at left was saved with no transparency and displays with a solid, white background. The center image was saved with transparency, but since its matte color was set to the default of white, it appears to have a ghosted halo around its edge. The image at right was saved both with transparency and with its matte color matching that of the Web page background.
