I used the following site to create and export a PNG file with transparency.
I used this site : http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-using-web-transparency.html
I am able to successfully save the PNG and when it opens in GIMP transparency is present.
But transparency is absent in all other applications including web browsers and photoshop also. The transparent portion is white in these applications.
Why does only GIMP get transparency info from the PNG? why cant other applications see the transparency?
