my .png won't work
Strange: I cut something out in alpha channel/transparency and saved it in .png - like i've done many times before - and it doesn't save with a transparent background.
Anyone know what I've done wrong, or how to fix it?
Thanks!

RE: my .png won't work
In the PNG export dialog, is the option "Save color values for transparent pixels" active of grayed out? It's grayed out when the image you save has no transparency (no alpha channel on any layers as far as can tell).

Ofnuts -
Thanks for your suggestion. The Save Color Values box was clicked, but I think I solved the problem. There's a drop-down box, across from Select File Type, that has all kinds of choices including .png, which I clicked in place. I don't know what it is. It's different than the drop-down selection box - but it gave me transparent cut-outs. thank heavens.
