How can I get the matte/crisp finish on web images as in the top of the EE website?

I have a banner and photos for my website all in jpeg format. I want to give them a professional finish and very much like the matte/crisp look on various websites, for example the overall look of the top of the EE website.

Can anyone give me some pointers as I seem to be hitting a dead end on the Photoshop help and Google.....

Thanks

What do you mean by "matte/crisp" -- please give a few synonyms, or more description of the part of the site you like.  Thanks, ~Ray

Looking at the top of the EE website, the finish of the tabs at the top are clear but have a matte-type finish to them rather than glossy images. Many websites are now displaying these kind of images - perhaps flattened appearance is another description....?

I think I follow.  It looks like they are using a gradient graphic for the background and using CSS to make it "light up" when you mouse over.  The transparency may simply be a matter of matching the tab to the color of the background, or it could be a transparent PNG file - not sure which.
