Xparent background image is totally transparent!
I've attached before and after images. The "after" image was created using Layer > Transparency > Add Alpha Channel, and the using the Magic Wand to select the areas for deletion.

When I place the image on a webpage, it is completely transparent! How can I fix this?

Thanks.

(in your case, make sure you have selected all the closed areas, in the letters and between the leaves)

2) Your link to the result image doesn't work for me, so I can't tell what is wrong with your picture. The method above works for me on your file.

You're saying that you cannot see the "after" image?

I tried it your way and the result is attached. When I placed it on a website, the entire image was transparent.

What is the URL of your site? I suspect the problem is in your HTML anyway (answer in PM if needed)

Here is the full-sized version of the result:

Do me a favor please and shrink it to 120x80. See if it displays correctly.

Thanks.

You're right. I had an HTML error. Thanks for the help.
