    Rabbits don't cough up fur balls and they also do not vomit. They do however do poops that a strung together. They gotta get rid of that fur somehow right?

    We use metallic inks but they are so different to foils that I don't think I've ever been asked to match them. I guess it really depends on what colour the foil is as to if there will be an appropriate...

    how to design a logo in adobe photoshop 7 with transparent back ground , this logo is used on any back ground?

  • #2
    Logos shouldn't be designed in Photoshop. They should be designed in Illustrator, CorelDraw or another vector program.

    You can't design a raster logo at 4 x 4 cm and then enlarge it for a billboard.

        Design in Illustrator as mentioned, but sounds like you need to put the transparent logo somewhere on the web (as this is in the Web Design forum).

        PNG and GIF support transparency for the web. GIF supports one level of transparency, while PNG supports many levels (256 or more?) of transparency.

          Just keep in mind that the PNG 24 bit is not supported by IE right now.

            Huh? Wut u mean, Val? I've been using PNG-24 I think since IE6. I say "I think" because I don't usually use IE (I prefer Firefox) and thus don't remember exactly, but I've been using IE8 on a regular basis now and it definitely supports it.

              I have not installed IE8 (if I do, I can't test on 7), and I have IE 5-7 installed due to something I downloaded a while back. Is it time for me to jump on the IE8 train yet? It isn't as widely used as 7, so I have not bothered with it. While I PERSONALLY use FF mostly (and safari for quickies), I still make sure to test for a wide variety of users.

              Here is a link about png transparency in IE 7 and a js fix (which I haven't tried or used yet - just good info I found:
              http://www.devinrolsen.com/tutorials..._fix/index.php

              and I pulled some text from it:

              Now that we can see why PNG 24 images are better to use when performing transparency vs gif images, let’s look at the problem we have when trying to use PNG 24 images on IE browsers.

              IE rendering engine is not of the best compared to a lot of well used browsers such as Fire fox and Safari and in fact is ridiculed as being the worst browser to develop sites on because of all the hacking and patching users have to do in order to make their designs perform correctly in IE browsers. So it’s no surprise that this is the same when trying to use PNG 24 images and the IE browser.

              When IE 7 came out there was a sigh of relief when it was announced that IE7 will finally support PNG 24 images and the alpha transparency we would like to have. Unfortunately this was a blatant lie on IE’s part because we were in fact still left with no PNG 24 support as the previously claimed.

              Let’s take a look at what the effect of the PNG 24 looks like when trying to run them on IE.
              So basically Ned, you CAN use 24 bit pngs (hell all us designers would LOVE to use it all the time with no hacks or hassle as is explained why in the article/tute), but you need to do an IE hack to revert to a gif or non trans image to replace or it looks like crap.

              AND..it seems that IE8 has some issues too...

                Ah, I see... I do think it's time for you to make the IE8 jump though, because it's the first IE browser which won't frustrate the hell out of you from lack of features. It's basically a melding of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome functions, and includes stuff like tabbed browsing and a search field, which they should've had half a dozen years ago. It even has some useful unique features like colored tabs (so you know which tabs came from which other tabs), but some frustrations like not being able to right-click the back/forward buttons to get a list of browsing history to jump to. As far as an IE browser though, it's an incredible leap for them.

                  Oooh maybe! But there are no stats so far on w3c....EDIT* woops lol there are but less then 10% isn't enough for me to ignore IE7 and 6...

                  http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

                  Aside from that...is there at least a way for me to install it and still have IE 4 -7 too?

                  The main reason I have not installed it yet is because I think it is still important for usability in 6 and 7. I am definitely fading out 6 more, but I still have a few clients using it...*GAG*

                    Now that I'm not sure about, Val. IE8 installs as a Windows Update as far as I've experienced, which wipes out the old version. But you could probably install it separately if you download it straight from Microsoft's site or something...

                      I would definitely install directly from MS site. I have windows installed on my mac via bootcamp/parallels, and only have 20GB allocated to it. I use it JUST for testing sites in browsers & testing HTML emails with outlook. I'll have to look into it..if I can install and run everything then I am game.

                        Strictly speaking, IE has supposrted PNG transparency since version 5.5. It just supported it in a wildly non-standard way. But then, supporting stuff in a non-standard way is what IE's always been best at

                          What do you mean by non standard? It is ridiculous if you can't make it work with in an <img> tag or as a css background image. It should work plain and simple. I guess I could look it up but I just got home from work and doing more work now...it never ends! But I am definitely interested in trying to understand what the non-standard approach would be. If it takes more time than doing it the right way, it's the wrong way.

                              Thanks Hew, thats great for IE 6, but it's still a fix. :P and There's still no short/easy solution I see for IE7. I really should just do some research on this...I visited this topic a while back but I should definitely revisit it soon...I would love to use png24 more. There are just so much more creative things you can do!
