These are the 6 easy steps of how to use Iaza for the transparency of the background.
1. Save the image of the item(s) on your computer. Make sure the background color is lime green as shown.
(Chich - "Actually, it can be any color as long as it's not found anywhere in the item.")
(Aye- Thanks buddy!
2. Open up the website www.iaza.com and click on 'Load Image'.
3. Click on 'Browse' then select the item you have made and click 'Open'. Press 'Load' to continue or 'Clear' to select another item.
4. The image should have shown. On the 4th box below the image, there should be a link underneath 'Create' saying 'Transparent'. Click it.
5. The image should have a blue outline around it. Click on the background of your image. If the outline doesn't change to purple, try again.
Once it is purple, click on 'Convert'. The image should appear with a transparent background.
6. After making the background transparent, go over to the first column and select "Convert to PNG". That is the only format accepted by this site. Save it. You have now finished.
I hope this will help. If you have any questions, please post them in the comment box. Thank You!
Transparency with Photoshop and newer versions of Paint Shop Pro
Pretty easy. Assuming you made your item on a new layer, set the visibility of the background layer to "off" and save as PNG.
Transparency with Paint Shop Pro 8 or lower
This is the program I use. Again assuming you made your item on a new layer, make a background layer and fill it with #00FF00 lime green. Set the visibility of the layer that contains the base to "off", save your work in a file format that preserves your layers (e.g. psd, psp, pspimage), then choose "set palette transparency" from the menu. It will ask you to flatten the image, this is okay if you saved. Then choose lime green as the transparent color. Choose "save as" and save in PNG format.
