Image loses transparency
I have a very strange behaviour here.
*) Open the image "Ok.png" - you'll see there's a small green triangle on the right.
*) Mark and delete a bit of the triangle.
*) Save the image (I checked the 3rd (gamma), the 5th (resolution) and the 6th (time) checkbox).

When I now open the saved image in a different viewer (I use the picasa viewer because this viewer shows the transparent areas nicely), the image is still transparent.

*) Delete the rest of the small green triangle on the right.
*) Save the image.

When you now open it in a different viewer, then suddenly the background isn't transparent anymore. (It's then like the 2nd attached pic - Fail.png)

RE: Image loses transparency
Hmmm... then maybe it's a bug in Picasa.
Thanks a lot!
