png ?
All right, I've got some questions about .png

Why are some of these checked and unchecked when saving

Quote:Interlacing (Adam7)
*Save background color
Save gamma
Save layer offset
*Save resolution
*Save creation time
*Save comment
*Save color values from transparent pixels
*Compression level: ---------9 "v"

*Default setting

Because I saved a png image just now and when I sent the image the color of the text was much brighter than the text on the Gimp program. I thought these settings might have something to do with it.

I've been wondering anyway. I usually check "save layer offset", as it helped once when an image would not save correctly.

Because

RE: png ?
Im not really sure what that means.

I know how to change the color from like grey scale -to- RGB. Do you means to prepare an HTML file, by opening up a color box to choose a color and manually choosing a matching color i.e. #000000? What means it color discrepancies, not sure.

RE: png ?
Ok maybe I was not clear.

I have this image here a member wants me to create a transparent background for.

[Image: avatar_9-1.jpg]

Not sure if you can see here on but on their forum the image is coming out very pixalated around the borders

[Image: avatar_9-2.png]

I have included the xcf. In Gimp the image looks perfect with pixalation. Why is the finished product showing up blotchy?

I already added grow>alpha to color,

RE: png ?
It looks much better as his avatar, I asked him if he would prefer the wiener dog...he has not yet responded...



On further note. This seems to be a problem I have regularly with my little knowledge of Gimp. (come to think of it I do nothing else except read and study about computers and yet I am still clueless about so many things you would think I spend hardly any time on a PC at all).

Here is this image I have created.

It looks fine yes, but if you really get a good look on a darker background (or it may be clear here), the image has pixalation in the grooves! Grrr, is it a setting I need to change when saving, during creation, or an effect?

I only made two layers of text which I used a gradient on one, and a filter on the other "basic II" < I'm guessin g it was the latter. And a drop shadow.

Just the grooves. The grooves arent smooth they have like jaged edges. (the grooves within the text.)

K I see what you are saying except as for the mathematical theorem; I've done my fair share of taking notes from wiki, and this could be the first one I finished carefully reading through and felt like I knew less after reading it.

As for your new user title. Now that was an interesting read. Had no idea there was a syndom for that.

Lastly I did make the image as you said and I totally understand. I was trying to do it for this image though and it is not the same.

I just made the back bround transparent, color to alpha.

RE: png ?
But this does not ansewr the question at hand. Are you saying to alter the color settings? Instead of color to alpha to ┬┤white' you are saying to color to alpha the offset black' color?
