[Pro] Clear areas of images showing as solid colour

I’ve just had my first go at creating a website and although it isn’t quite there yet I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got so far. My greatest issue is that I’m struggling with getting clear areas of an image to appear as see through when published. I’ve tried every file format and changing the layering options but I can’t work it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Cat

Can you point us at specific image/images on your site and tell us what is or isn’t happening for you.

As a rule for transparency you either need to use Gif or Png files (for Png use millions of colours) and ensure that you have transparent areas in the original.

Change the output settings in FW to match.

Gif is best for blocks of solid colour, text etc while Png for continuous tone like photos.
