    PNG Avatars

    I know everyone knows about this, and really doesn't mind it, but it's starting to bug me a bit. If you set an image with an invisible back drop as your avatar, the back drop becomes white, and the image looks crappy.

    I know this can be overcome very easily by just adding a gray back ground to your image, regardless, how hard would it be to change this?

    If this could be changed, thanks.

    If not, still thanks for running such a great forum. xD

    You don't need a gray background... You just go into photoshop and set a transparent background then c+p your render/picture or create text on top of the render.

    I know that, I'm now a failure at PS. -.-

    Whenever I upload it as my avatar, the transparent background becomes white.

    Haze and creepy choob save the day. IMO try illustrator as well, especially if you're making your sig from scratch.
