Use a special kind of .gif . Find some tutorial with google.

Most programs that will do that are expensive but some times you can find some to use as a test. Get every thing done you want or may want so when it expires no porblem mon.

Can it be done with Adobe Photoshop?
I have that... If it's not to much trouble: How do I do it?

Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

you can do it with photoshop. simply delete the background, actually delete it, don't just fill it with white. Make sure there are no layers below it, so you should see a checkered "background." Finally, save it as a .gif file.
when you create a new file, you have the option to start with a transparant canvas. Just select "transparant" in the contents section in the "new" window.

psd doesn't work, (for me at least, I mean photobucket won't take them)http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif yea, png.8 works the best in these forums...I'd go that way, and besides, who want's to have white specs all over your cool pic?http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
