Transparent background shows up white when uploaded
Hi guys,

I have a photo with a background that I erased and when I open it in Windows it looks fine, but when uploaded to a site like Facebook, the white background shows up. Any ideas?

Hi,

I erased the background then save as PNG. It asks me to export so I do.

hey Ofnuts,

I just read that facebook might have problem with pngs. Anyway I could save it in a different format that permanently saves the transparency ?
