here is my problem

please help, i cant save a fully transparent image


If you try to Export then with no coloured pixels at all, or even with an entirely transparent mask, Photoshop will claim the image is empty - which, strictly speaking, it is.

However, if you Save as… then it will allow you to save a completely empty image.

  • ok i did that but the image saved is now white instead of transparent .... – far cry Jan 13 at 17:47
  • Then save it in a format that can use transparency/alpha… ie png, not jpg. – Tetsujin Jan 13 at 17:48
  • hi sorry but i am not seeing any png option :( – far cry Jan 13 at 17:53

  • Sorry, I have no idea why that is. I don't use Windows (which I think is what that looks like) This is what the save dialog looks like on Mac, with a drop menu of format types… i.stack.imgur.com/L4DDs.png – Tetsujin Jan 13 at 17:56

File -> Export -> Save for Web (Legacy) will let you export a blank transparent png.

  • So will File > Save As... – Scott Jan 13 at 17:03
