View Full Version : Modifying smileys...Need Help

10-30-2005, 06:18 PM
Okay here's the problem. If I copy a smiley, like the "I'm With Stupid" smiley, and paste it in MSPaint, it has a black background. Well when I modify it and save it as a BMP and repost it on CTECH, it still has that black background. I can't save it as a GIF or it will mess up the colors. Any suggestions?

Quite frankly MS Paint sucks, try using a better program. You have to safe it as a GIF since it allows the area around the smiley to be transparent. You could try Paint.NET (http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/) since it's free. See if it handles GIFs better. If not just get Adobe Photoshop. Great image editing program.

do you want to keep it animated? if so as soon as you open it in mspaint itll stop animating, I would use an animation program like imageready or animation shop. Whatr you trying to do though? maybe I could help
