Hi gurus, I have a PNG logo file that has a transparent background (see attached Flexuswoosh-trans file). It's fine except for the internal teal color within the lettering - ideally I would like to have that color be the same as the color that the buttons in my app are - see attached file buttoncolor.bmp. See how the button's color has a nice metallic shiny effect? (I did this with AlphaSkins). I'd like the inside lettering color in my "Flexu" logo to be the same way.
   What I was thinking was, if I could somehow make the teal colored part of that logo transparent, then I could slap the logo on top of the buttoncolor.bmp image and the nice metallic color would come thru the transparent part - then just save that. I tried this in Irfanview and it wouldn't make the teal colored part transparent. Any ideas?
