View Full Version : Question: Transparent profile content areas?

August 14th, 2009, 1:13 PM
I've seen profiles with an image in the main background and then everything else transparent (see: Abnegation, Gerri Shin)

How do you do this?

Oh I'm not counted? Mine uses transparency. :|
You have to make a solid image (as in, opaque), then use something like Paint.NET/GIMP to make it transparent.

Alright. Thought it was an effect but couldn't find it.

Thanks, (and no offense attempted xD)

Oh by the way, when you have the image you want transparent (translucent being the correct word for this situation), in Paint.NET (what I use), you have to open the image, Go to Layer properties, and use the opacity slider.

If you want the background picture to show through, you will have to set the Block Border background colour to be transparent.
