    set the opacity lower so its transparent, and the part u don't want to have transparent have it as another layer on top of background
    yeah.

    I think your on the wrong track there...
    i know about how to make transparency in layers etc

    take my avatar -
    it has a white background

    i want this posted here without it - how?
    if i convert it to jpeg - then go to image/mode/indexed - it asks to mark -"transparency" - imark white colours only
    no change ....or
    Thanx

    JPEGs don't support transparance. In GIFs, just fill in the background with the color "transparent" or another color which you set at the transparency index.

    *shakes head and smiles*

    Okay. Time for a quick tutorial.
    This is ONE way of doing it.

    Open your image in photoshop.

    Use the magic wand selection tool to select the area you want to make transparent.
    Click on the Help Menu and select "Export Transparent Image"
    A wizard will open.

    Select the option that says "I have selected the area to be made transparent"
    Hit the "Next" button.

    Choose "Online"
    Hit the "Next" button.

    Select Gif (although .png's sometimes are clearer and have a smaller filesize. Play around and see which format is best for you.)
    Hit the "Next" button.

    Read the text and hit the "Next" button again.

    Tick the "Preview" checkbox so you can see how your image will look.
    Choose "Uniform"
    Tick the "Transparency" checkbox. Notice the background of your image has become transparent.
    In the Options area, select the page colour that the image will "sit" on.
    For example, if the webpage is black, choose Black from the dropdown list.
    This is so the image wont have ugly lumps of colour around its outline.
    If your not sure of the colour just choose "None".

    Dither: I usually choose "None" but use the preview image and see what setting suits you.
    Click Okay.

    Give the image a name and save it to the directory of your choice.
    Click Okay.

    Choose whether you want the image to be interlaced or not.
    Interlaced means the image will display at low quality at first, then become clearer as the details are downloaded.
    Non interlaced simply means the image will load from top to bottom.
    Click Okay.

    Click the Finish button and your done.

    Hope all that made sense... it's a lot quicker and easier to do than it is to type out...
