this isnt actually about the client, but i thought this thread would be better here than on another part of the forum.

anyway, i uploaded a png (that im using atm) and tryed playing with the colours. i got these two problems:

1. if i put bg transparency on, the text colour is dark (rather than pure white/#ffffff like i choose) and Tux and the Tcl logo go all dark blueish.

is this because it is made into an indexed png?, wouldnt it better if it could match the colour closest to what the user choose rather than some random colour. a nice option would be if you could get an unindexed png (screw ie users ;-))

2. when i turn transparency off for bg, and choose pure white for the background, it makes it black instead :-/

yeah, but did you do that by converting it to 255 colour yourself?, because the quality looks crap... :-(

yeah I'm not that good with photoshop :).
I was just saying that the transparency works now, wasnt trying to show off the image or anything

And png transparency only supports 256 colors, it dumps the rest.

Edit:
ok i redid it. Hows this?

ah, that looks great now.

btw, png supports transparency in indexed (any number of colours, not just 255) and translucency RBG (with an alpha channel). but ie only supports transparency at indexed with 255 colours, which is yet another reason ie sucks.
