i'd like to retain the layer effects that i create in photoshop (eg outer glow), to create an image with an outer glow that i can then import into flash. transparent background is key!

any ideas?

    Hi aidan,

    If your original image in Photoshop has a transparent background then it'll remain transparent (with gradient glow intact) when you Save As PNG. Flash shouldn't have any problem displaying that transparent gradient either.

    and there you go!
    i've been using the 'save transparent image' in the 'help' pulldown, and for whatever reason, it hasnt been able to retain the layer effects.
    simply saving as PNG from 'save as' menu works perfectly!
