WBG - Transparency Tutorial by The-Godlings-Rapture WBG - Transparency Tutorial by The-Godlings-Rapture

THIS IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO DO TRANSPARENCY.

I'm ignoring any more comments telling me "oh use [insert program here] instead" because NOT EVERYONE HAS THESE PROGRAMS. I use MS Paint to make my sprites, and it doesn't support transparency, hence the second method I show.

I don't mind if you tell me of other methods, but don't chastise me because "oh you're changing the background color that's stupid" because IT'S AN ALTERNATIVE.

Any more of these complaints and I'll eventually just disable comments, because I don't want people bitching at me that "oh your way is pointless and stupid" all the damn time.

Why did I never realise that I could do that on MS Paint?!?! This is brilliant and extremely helpful! Thank you so much for posting this tutorial! :iconglompplz: I am definitely going to use this idea from now on when I submit sprites.

Just keep in mind that doing this transparency method only works on sites with one set background (like dA) :s

This is very useful. I might use this for when I'm making sprites.

Wouldn't it just be easier to use a program such as Paint.net that supports transparency?

The same could be said for GIMP or Photoshop. However, not everyone makes their sprites in those programs, me included.
