I think I've figured out how to get transparent PNGs from gimp to appear OK (ish) in i.e by setting the background colour before saving and toggling the option to save background colour...

But I was wondering if it was possible for GIMP to save the background colour as transparent ? (It seems to allow only solid colours)

PhotoShop seems to be able to do this and those PNGs work fine in IE6 (not sure about others)

Ps. It would be nice if the freehand selection tool allowed you to select straight lines rather than guessing all the time, i.e. for cutting out a box shape at an angle..

I'm pretty ignorant of how to use gimp and even worse and photo shop so flame me if I'm talking rubish..
