Can I get a transparent background to an image which I want to add to a post, please? It’s coming up with a white background, whereas I would like it basically, to have no background. (My current theme is pink so it looks kinda silly!)
PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics. It’s a lossless bitmap image format that is popular on the World Wide Web and elsewhere. PNG was largely developed to deal with some of the shortcomings of the GIF format and allows storage of images with greater color depth and other important information.
Many graphics programs such as Photo Shop and Gimp will work with PNG as well as many other formats and save images in different formats. Gimp is open source and free if you don’t want to buy or don’t have an existing graphics program. I use Gimp and have been quite happy with it.
