Task 4 How to Create a GIF Transparency

GIF files have an advantage over JPEG files in that they enable you to set certain areas as transparent. This means you can create silhouette effects to place over web page backgrounds. The transparent areas in a GIF file are completely invisible. This task uses ImageReady to create the transparency.

1. Open File in ImageReady

In ImageReady, select File, Open. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to work with and click Open.
