Brick Transparent only sometimes?
K so Ive got this new image Id like to perfect.

Here it is

Now, here we have a png image that has a tranparent background on the GimpForums. But when posted on Facebook the background is WHITE. A perfectly squarish whited out background

As you can see:

Attached is the xcf. You can see its very simple. A transparent background on a png image. Doesnt get much more basic. Is it the Facebook coding?

A nice solution to making it look nice on fb since its being converted to .jpeg.

Might be to make a background layer with a similar color of the background that you're posting the image to.

Then zoom in and use the eraser tool on your snake layer and clean up the white bits(since there are only a few) before you save it as a .jpeg
