Trouble with my avatar

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I try making avatars with the OCN color background, but when I load them there is always a white line on the bottom and right side. What am I doing wrong, or how do I keep this from happening?

Thanks

Don't add the blue color to your pic. Put the guy on a colorless background (transparent png), and nothing else.

Didn't work. I deleted the background layer, but now it just defaults to white...

Are you saving as a transparent png? If not, it will default to white.

Step 1: open a new document, choose background as tranparent




Step 2: choose your layer




Step 3: save for web




Step 4: choose png, make sure that transparency is checked. save

Just make sure the background is checkered (as in transparent) and just go to Save As, then pick .png from the dropdown list. That's what i always do. If that is what you are doing i'm not sure.

EDIT: Or try what dskina sugggested.

EDIT2: Here.
