  • Mrsite - how to make photo backgrounds transparent?

    Im in the process of working on my website with Mrsite this afternoon and I just cant work out how to make a photo background transparent. In the little manual it tells you to simply put in FFFFFF to make the background transparent but I cant find anywhere in Adobe to enter this.

    Am I going mad or is it simply looking me in the eye and I just cant see it!?

    Ive managed to fill the background using a colour but I want it transparent not colourfull??!!!

    If anyone can help then I would appreciate it......I cant switch this computer off until Ive achieved that today!!

    Thank you

        I'm not familiar with Mr Site so I might not be much help...but I do build my own websites (but am not a programmer) and I do a lot of image manipulation etc...

        The only way I know how to do this is to make the image into a GIF image file...some clipart is already GIF which is why sometimes when you use MSWord clipart it has a transparent background...

        The way that I make the backgrounds of my own pictures transparent is using Photoshop and I honestly don't know of any other way to do it...

        If you don't find an answer and you don't have Photoshop and there are only a few images I will do it for you, if you get desperate

        You could Private Message Ann of MrSite who offers helps and advice via the forums...search the forum for MrSite and I'm sure you'll find some of her posts...

        EDIT: I meant to say that #FFFFFF is the HTML/Hexidecimal code for white..so that confuses me a bit...

          Hi Jude,

          Thank you for your help and suggestions and offering to change these for me, I really do appreciate it.

          In the Mrsite manual it reads.....If you have a circular shaped logo, it will be contained in a square box when you send it to Mr Site. To keep the logo circular when it appears on your website, you will need to make the box around your logo transparent. This can be achieved by making the box around your logo pure white in colour using FFFFFF.

          Ive assumed this will make it transparent but I guess what they are really saying is, it will make the background white and will then only become transparent once inserted onto a white background on your website. My background is lilac and so of course the white stands out and is not transparent!!

          What Ive now done is taken the background of the sketches I want to appear transparent and used my website page colour coding for the background on these. As its the same colour as my website page background, they then appear transparent! Hope this still remains so once my site is finally up and running.

          Thank you all once again for your help and suggestions.
