Po' Smedley's Life And Brain Drippings
February 2012
Published on January 31, 2012 By PoSmedley In OS Customization

About six years ago, Phoenixheart started a thread titled 'Rare Icon Request' which got 1907 hits in four years. I cut my teeth on Photoshop doing requests in that thread as did a few other skinners. I lost count of the icons I did. I also lost count of the Iconpackages I started or OD packs I started because of ideas I got from that thread.

Anyway.....there are a lot of great artists out here making icons for all kinds of things. So, what have you got going on with icons? Dazzle us. I know I would love to see. As I plug through my first windowblind (One Piece At A Time -threads) we have skinners making other things to go with it and someone out there is working on some icons as well.

What are you working on? Or are you a first timer looking for tips? Post here!

No, I am saving from Photoshop as a transparent PNG and it shows transparent in icon developer but when I save the icon it saves with a black background. I can open the same png in Photoshop and save as an icon and the background is transparent.

I am trying and can't even duplicate this on purpose.

Exactly how are you saving it in Photoshop? I have tried multiple variations/settings in png format to see if I can duplicate your issue but have yet to do it. Importing the image into ID is pretty straight forward so I'm stuck thinking it's how you're saving it in Photoshop.

I also tried every single variation I could to reproduce the issue that Frankief is having , and I couldn't. It has to be something to do with how it is being saved I'm sure. I haven't found an image yet that I could not manipulate to make it do what I want , with the exception of some resizing adjustment issues I've had that vary across different software platforms, but other than that, this one has got me stumped.            -- Ace ---

Got to be dedicated to the those 3D proggies.. kinda like those people that use skin studio.. props!

Well, if you're looking (or anyone is looking) for 3D software, you may want to check this out. Good until 2/29/2012. The only catch is that you have to be a subscriber or sign up for their newsletter.

Really?

And continuing to fluff off?

Okay. think I figured it out! I saved the PNG without merging my layers. As soon as I saved as PNG with merged layers, I got the transparent background. I appreciate all of the input and now have a new avenue to explore!

Maybe if you actually stopped by the Roan thread to see the progress, grandma.

Oh wait. You have. So you're either getting senile, have Alzheimer, or your just busting my damn hump.

Great Frankief !! So glad to hear you got the problem resolved. That makes my day. Good job !      -- Ace --

And that's putting it nicely.

on Feb 02, 2012

Yup. Had to pause the download. Then when I resumed it ...... the download could not be saved. Could not read the source file. So ...... trying again. I got six more chances after this one if it doesn't work. If I can't get it by then I'm gonna hang up my dl finger.
