Bonita,

PhotoShop is absolutely pathetic in its handling of transparent
images.  If you don't save in the native PhotoShop format, you don't get
transparency.  It sucks.  Why PhotoShop is this pathetic is a complete
mystery to me.  Instead, you have to do a bunch of crap where you make
an alpha channel and <then> save it as a TIFF, PNG, TGA, or other format
that understands transparency.  The internal alpha channel that
PhotoShop has to maintain in order to provide transparency is not easily
output by it.

    Thanks,
    PeterM
