I tried transparency with photoshop, got the grey boxes, and it doesnt really work when imported to flash. So transparent backgrounds are out until I find the time to screw with it some more.

Note: this is what I got

Yeah, that's what I got when I tried with Flash way back then too. Guess they never fixed it. Shame, since flash has such nice vector drawing utilities. It also compresses to other formats horribly too... but meh.

Anyway, here's what I got when I played with yours in Imageready. It's background free for universal usage:


I was toying with ideas for making imagemaps to reduce signature clutter and akwardness... but I don't remember how...

 In Flash, when you export there is an option for transparency. You need to make sure that there is nothing obstructing the background, as that is what is considered a background.

 And I think I have a system down for now. Should make anything in the future easier.

Make me a picture of a !!Moin!! in ASCII, and you shall be rewarded with eternal life and the most sublime chocolate cookie you shall ever taste.

I think that if you just open the gif in a decent paint program, each frame will be a separate layer and you can just delete the backgrounds.

Yes, like that kind of slideshow. Basically, a large MOIN in the middle, with !!'s flashing on and off.

Helmaroc: Any specific size? or anything special? I'm thinking of a little blue dot fluttering around and then a cat killing it.

How about it's 'flying' around in the square, and it ends up flying inside a barrel.

I finally figured out transparency in photoshop, it's a three step process which needs me to export from flash to photoshop, but in the end it makes a nice, clean picture.



I'll get working on your picture right now, Helmaroc.

This is what I came up for you helmaroc, I could make the bird a bit more erratic moving, but if not then there you go.


I want to make that barrel explode though.
