Now it should work in both themes
It didn't show straight away.. I could see the other background colour. But it turned white after a few seconds. Cool!!
I think I have to find a way so it can load faster ..
Still pretty funky though!! ^_^
Whats it supposed to be?
I was looking at it for 10 minutes and all it was was a cresent.
@Bobby - It's allowing "alpha channels". They are maps that you can have on an image to make bits of it transparent.
E.g. If you wanted an Ork logo in your sig, but the eye-holes were pink (or something), you could add an alpha channel to make them see-through - thusly blending with LO's background colour. In this respect it is possible to have an image with out a definite border visible, as this could be mapped with alpha channels - making it invisible.
Hope that helps!
Apathy is its own reward...
To further elaborate on that, alpha blending allows smooth transitions between solid color, and % levels of transparancy. GIF images hasn't got alpha trans, it's only transparent pixel, or solid color pixel (which is why the new badges are so jagged [beeing worked on]), whereas PNG images have alpha trans. So, that pixel could be regal blue, but 37% transparent, allowing for smooth borders on, say the shiled on my admin badge, allowing it to blend into the background colour. Every other major browser supports PNG and it's transparency, except Microsofts Internet Explorer, which does support it, but in a funky way, cause transparent pixels in IE will get a funky background colour. find one such image, and try it in firefox and IE, and you'll see what I mean. So, until MS gets off their lazy behind and implements PNG proper (they've only had years and years already!), we're stuck with ugly GIF images, and dirty hacks =)
