Photoshop not saving GIF with transparency.
Posted on 2003-03-19
I am using Photoshop 6 on a PC. I am working with graphics where there is transparency around the outsides of the graphics created by deleting the pixels. I don't have a background layer--in other words, I can see the checkerboard transparency.
Anyway, when I go to File>Save for Web and choose any GIF setting, even when I make sure the checkbox is checked for "transparency" and even though I can see the checkerboard swatch in the color table, all previews still show a white background, and it ends up being exported with a white background.
If I use the eyedropper in the Save for Web dialog box and click on the white area that should be transparent, the darkest swatch in the color table is always selected.
I have never seen anything like this before, and I have no idea what could be causing it. Any suggestions that you can give would be greatly appreciated.
