Why is the transparency not working on images that I bring in? What can I do to get the transparency to work so that I do not have a white or black block around an image?

I am using Visual Site Designer and trying to place a .gif on there.

Hiya Ellen,

Is it VSD you are asking about the transparency for or is it Live Chat you are trying to get to use transparency within VSD? Just want to clarify because you posted in the Live Chat Forum. If it's VSD we'll see that the post gets moved there so you get better exposure for your question :)

Some websites created by Elements in Webdesign: - A friends site I created to help raise awareness to help stray cats in her area. - the local Literacy Council in my city. - one of the local hair dressers in my town. - Dedicated to a friend who recently passed away from Lung Cancer.

The background your seeing is to help position the image in the design window. It should appear correct when you preview and on the live site.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.
Here's my CoffeeCup SCCP Shop with examples of what can be done.
This is a site I built for use in my job.

Thanks Eric, I just realized that before I read your post! I was banging my head against the wall for nothing.
