Hi, I want to add some text to a banner image I have for my website. in a 'transparent' sort of way. A perfect example of this is at the site www.stricknet.com
. Not so much the 1st rotating image there, but the 2nd and 3rd are good examples of what I'd like. Note how it's a "blackened" sort of text box at the lower left of the image, but yet the image underneath still shows through somewhat.
I have Paint.net and have just downloaded Gimp... I know a little in Paint.Net, but nothing really yet about Gimp.
