How to make a "Graphics Interchange Format" as Transparent in Photoshop or any other tool ?


In Photoshop, whatever is transparent in the document will be transparent in a GIF or PNG image.

Simply use transparency in your layers within Photoshop and when you Save For Web as a GIF or PNG, that transparency is seen and used. There are no special steps you need to take to ensure transparency transfers to the final image.

  • What about the "default" all-white locked background layer? Hide/delete it? – horatio Apr 16 '14 at 21:52
  • Simply remove it. It's only "default" if you set it to white in the New Document window. – Scott Apr 16 '14 at 21:58
