Turning a transparent image into a "normal" one ;)

Hey everyone!

I have a few transparent images on my website that looks very good in Firefox, but as IE does not support transparent images, it shows a grey background color.

I would like to change theses images into non-transparent images, because the only part that is transparent is the image's surroundings, which are unneccesary.

I hope this isnt too confusing, and thanks for any assistance!

Huh?! IE certainly supports GIF transparency! (Well, maybe not IE v1, but I stopped using that some time ago.)

Anyway, if you want to remove the transparency, simply edit the palette and set the "transparent" color to the background color of your page!

Thanks for the reply!

Transparency may be the wrong word if in fact IE does support them. I will try the pallete change, and reply back!

Ahh yes, flattening the images worked. Thanks again!

IE can support 1-bit transparency in both GIF and PNG. However, 8-bit transparency in PNG is tricky for IE5.5 to IE6, which requires the use of a DirectX filter and some clever JavaScript.
