Background transparency lets you place a nonrectangular graphic object against the background of a Web page; the areas outside the borders of the object are defined as transparent, letting the Web-page background color show through. You can specify background transparency for GIF and PNG images.
Before you can use the GIF file format’s ability to preserve transparency, you must create some transparency in your image. You’ll do that by removing the white backdrop surrounding the image map. To start this process, you’ll first convert the Background layer to a regular layer.
Make sure that the 14Start2.psd file is open in ImageReady.
