Making a Graphic Transparent

The GIF format supports transparency. This is very useful when creating banners or heading text that you'd like to “float” over a background graphic.

  1. Open the Save for Web dialog box by choosing File⇨Save for Web.

  2. Select GIF as the format you'd like to save your graphic as.

  3. With the Eyedropper tool, click the color you'd like to make transparent.

  4. Click the Maps Selected Colors to Transparent button (shown in Figure 7-14 ) in the Color Table palette.

    Figure 7-14: Click the Map Selected Colors to Transparent button to make a color disappear.

    The color becomes transparent in your exported graphic file only; the original is not affected.
