Trying to make tattoo but transparent parts show up as white


I'm trying to make my own tattoo and used a template so i got the placement right. i even hid the template and saved it as a png before uploading it to sl. but all the transparent parts show up as white when i put it on the avatar. Am i missing something?

It sounds like you saved it as a 24-bit image instead of a 32-bit image, so it doesn't have an alpha channel.  You'll have to check your software to look at what your format options are called.  In Photoshop, you have to put the areas you want to be transparent (the white areas in your image now) in a new alpha channel and then select the "32 bit" option when you save the PNG file.  In GIMP, I believe you need to use the "Save For Web" option.
