I'm a Gimp newbie and I'm trying to create my company 'black text' logo on a
transparent background and save it as a jpg to be used on my web site.
Transparency and jpg are (AFAIK) a contradiction - jpg
doesn't support transparency.
I'm doing fine with the whole process except the transparancy issue. Every
time I try this I end up with my text logo on a white background. How do I
get a transparent background when saving to a jpg format?
Use a different file format (e.g. png or gif support
transparency - where png's transparency is not fully
supported by Internet Explorer, IE only uses transparency in
png in indexed mode)
