Post by Loki.Nya » 27 Jun 2006 19:05

Heya :)
I just created an avatar but I can't get the black top and bottom transparant.. I've searched this forum but couldn't find any clue how to do this... also tried in photoshop but couldn't succeed.
So can anyone help me with this please? :roll:

I'd love to know how to do this so I can make some more :)

http://wiki.beyondunreal.com/wiki/Addin ... _TGA_Files
(there's also a guide for Paint shop pro in it)
Adobe Photoshop

OK doing this in Photoshop is very simple. Using the various laso tools, magic wand or pen tool select the areas that you wish to be opaque.

If you dont already know how great the pen tool can be for making your selections try this : http://www.gurusnetwork.com/tutorials/p ... intro.html

Anyway after you made your slection go to the chanels tab (next where the layers tab is usualy). In the bottom right of the photoshop workspace click on the Channels tab (In the window with Layers by default). Find the small button at the bottom of this window that looks like a square with a circle inside. Click this to create the alpha channel. A chanel named Alpha1 should apear. Now check if what you want to be visible is WHITE. If it's the oposite click on the Alpha1 channel (should be under the blue)deselect (Ctrl+D) and invert (Ctrl+I). Save your file as targa, verify that the alpha checkbox is checked, and finally make sure you choose 32 bit in the popup after you save.
Make sure the image is 128x128 pixels

Since i'm playing around with photoshop anyway, I'll make it a bit more easy for ya ;)

(this is photoshop 9)
Select what you want visible

Press the button and Alpha 1 will appear

Save in this way :)

And press the 32 bit thingy

And you're done ^^
