I’m currently using pbrush, but it will not support GIFs…
How would I go about fixing this? So that I can make transparent images…


I beleve this Page has a few alternatives. http://agora.rpgclassics.com/showthread.php?t=22023


Here is my personal method of making transparent gifs…its pretty simple :stuck_out_tongue:

  1. Make sure you have paint, and <a href=“http://www.irfanview.com/”>Irfanview</a> (a great app to have anyway).

  2. Open the image you want to add transparency to in paint.

  3. Pick a color that does not appear anywhere else in the image. For example, pick a very bright neon color if the image is dark, or a very dark color if the image is bright.

  4. Paint this color in every spot you want transparency to occur.

  5. Save the image as a gif.

  6. Open the image in irfanview.

  7. Click Image > Palette > Edit Palette

  8. Look for the color that you used in step 3 and 4. Click on the color when you find it.

  9. Write down it’s “Index Number”, which is shown in the bottom left of this dialog.

  10. Click File > Save As > GIF > Show Options Dialog > Save Transparent Color > Set transparency to palette entry

  11. In the text box next to “Set transparency…” enter the index number that you found in step 8.

  12. Click save.

  13. Done :slight_smile:

I downloaded Irfan View - thanks!
But I don’t need to set, or specify the pallete colours at all.
When I save, I select the “Whoose colour when saving” option, and then just click on it after I click okay…
