Anyone here using MICROANGELO? How the heck do you make an icon TRANSPARENT??

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Microangelo Noob, Aug 22, 2005.

  1. I'm demo'ing Microangelo ver. 5.5 and I'm not even sure which
    "component" I need to be using to edit a previously-saved icon. I'm in
    "Studio" right now, but there's also Toolbox (sheesh, too much trouble
    to put them into ONE program? or maybe they call each other; I have no
    idea because I've never used the program before). Anyway, I have read
    every section of Microangelo's Getting Started + How To's on this and I
    just don't get it sigh.

    I have a simple 256-color icon that I want to make the background
    transparent on. I flooded it with cobalt blue (a unique color to the
    rest of the icon's palette) hoping to just, I don't know, click the
    damn thing and make it transparent. Well that didn't work lol.

    Someone want to help me just get started with this? I can't even
    search Eclipsit's forums without first registering :( (which I will NOT
    do before first viewing them) so I'm appealing to Usenet for a little
    help.

    Thanks everyone!

    He might well have... just as you've missed that it was cross-posted to
    four groups, two of which don't contain 'photoshop' in the group name.

    So, not only does he post it to the wrong group, he even crossposts it
    to the wrong groups...

    If you have Photoshop, you can easily do this with my free ICO format

  8. People, the only reason I cross-posted this to four different groups is
    because there IS no one (let alone four) Usenet group specifically
    dealing with the program Microangelo. Given the cynicism expressed in
    this thread, the lot of you aren't worth pointing out the obvious; but
    smarmy begs what smarmy gets. Listening class?

    Since the title of the post asks, within the _first four words_ of the
    subject, if you are using MICROANGELO, why even click the thread if you
    AREN'T?

    GET A LIFE.

    There IS no one forum to put a question like this to so C.H.I.L.L. your
    sarcasm. I'll put this question to the Corel groups, who at least have
    the sense to not reply if they have nothing productive whatsoever to
    say.

  9. What part of my OP didn't you appreciate? When I am demo'ing a piece
    of software I reserve the right to do so privately. If I wanted your
    organization to have my email address I would have registered with your
    forums directly.

    Why you block even the VIEWING of your forums absent registration is
    not only hostile to potential new customers, it's unnecessarily
    intrusive, and obstructive to the User's attempts to get comfortable
    with a new program they're trying out (er, programS, since for reasons
    not entirely clear to me you can't manage to put these fractured bits
    into just _one_ bloody program tsk).

    I can't urge you strongly enough to open your proprietary forums to be
    viewable by visitors. Forums were created not to be hostile to
    building communities, but rather for PROMOTING AND ENCOURAGING them.

    It turns me off.
    And I have to wonder how many others seeking answers to technical
    questions (doubtless encountered and addressed by Microangelo Users
    previously) have been repulsed by a solicitation for their private
    email address when they are merely trying out the software.

    Here's an original thought:
    How about answering my question so that a few thousand other people who
    might have this same question can efficiently find the answer on
    Google? I've permitted this post to be archived for this very reason .

    Perhaps you should consider INDIVIDUAL post to each group vs. the shot gun.

    That said you come hat in hand asking for help and berate everyone for not
    anticipating your unique needs
    the alt.micro-give-a-sh|t group is that way ==>

    In most of the NGs I read multiposting will attract considerably more
    flak than crossposting. Not only does it result in redundant answers
    because readers of only one of the groups won't see the responses in the
    others, but those who *do* read more than one of the groups concerned
    will see the messages repeated in each; most newsreaders will mark a
    cross-posted message as read on encountering it in another group.
