    I am trying to find out if there is a way to ensure my photos posted in my blog show up with a transparent background. They are PNG files. When I uploaded my header the transparency was fine. Now my new post “World’s Best Grilled Cheese” shows the transparent backgrounds with white backgrounds.

    Any help?

    The blog I need help with is dreamsnmemories.wordpress.com.

    You must upload an image of the exact size you need without cropping it after uploading to preserve transparency.

    I didn’t crop it. My theme adjusts the size of my image, does that effect the transparency?

    That did not work. I uploaded photos smaller and the exact size of what they should be to fit the screen and the backgrounds are still white.

    I changed the second image to fit the screen exactly. So wordpress did not adjust the size and I did not crop it.

    In your code, delete the width and height specifications:
    change this:

    to this:
