Transparent gifs losing their transparency
When sitting on a layer
BlobFisk

Hi all,

I am using a layer based navigation system, incorporating images. On the rollover 'drop-down' menu system the images have a transparent background. However, when viewed in a browser you can see white where there should be transparency. I open the images in Photoshop and they show as transparent.

Has anyone had this problem before? If so, any hints on how to fix it? Or is it a problem with my images?

All help greatly appreciated.

I have put an example of this online, the address is in my profile.

BlobFisk,

how can you tell your background is white with nothing on it :)

When you roll over outthegap, for example, you can see the anomolous white on the left hand side of the popup images sitting on top of the right hand side of the main menu images...

The images have transparent backgrounds, and therefore there should be no white corners. Also, the layer background is set to transparent.

Does that make sense? :)

blobfisk,

it's your CSS you are using a white background for your a tags and seeing that your images are links Hey presto they have a white background.

As he types, BlobFisk pulls a creamy pint of Murphys for DaveN

DaveN,

That did the trick! The fact that I had the background on my A tags set to #FFF instead of transparent was the ticket.

Thanks a million - much appreciated!

1. How many hands do you have?
2. Do you work in a pub? or did you get your own pump installed?
3. Can you pour me one too?

:) :) :)

1. How many hands do you have?

Still 2, thankfully... but I can type with only 1!


2. Do you work in a pub? or did you get your own pump installed?

Actually, I used to! It's kind of a rite of passage to true adulthood for many yound Irish males! Unfortunately, I have yet to get a pump installed in either work or home... I have a feeling that it would be the beginning of the end for me!


3. Can you pour me one too?

Pours a nice black pint of Murphys for knightly and a whiskey chaser, since it's nearly time to finish!

Anyone else? ;)

Unfortuntely (well, fortunately in a way!) I'll be in the middle of the Himalayas in Nepal and Tibet for all of October... :(

But, if you are London direction any time between Augist 14th and 16th, I'm there at a training course and will gladly buy you a real pint!
