    I'm 99% positive I have this on my laptop at home. If you can wait about 6 hours, I'll post it if I do.

    (assuming nobody else has done so in the meantime.)

    I may be partly responsible for the image in post #3. Someone had a similar request to the OP and a few of us messed with it. One poster found a link to the original cracked glass file. It's a Win desktop. The post was in Design and Graphics, but that is all I remember.

    Hi, I'm developing a site and I need it to float over another image. I want it to be transparent. How do I do it?

    I already know HTML code to do that, but I don't know the part that has to be done on Photoshop. Help please!!!

    Thanks for replying, but I guess I was not clear when I said what I wanna do. There's a DIV tag with an image uploaded by the user, then I need another layout over it with the cracked glass effect image. The screen mode didn't work for me. :(

    What you want

    Ah, what you're looking for is a cracked glass like image created in photoshop preserving the alpha (transparency) to overlay on changing content viewed by the end user via a browser...

    This might be more a web design forum based question... off the top of my head Flash may be the only solution to your particular goal. As far as I know (limited) is that in html you can set the transparency of an image, but not stack (layer) images on the fly from html code alone ...

    You can create a new doc in PS, apply a cracked glass effect, layer, whatever... turn off all other layers so you just see the glass effect and the checkboard standard no background pattern and select save as... then choose .tif and check the box that sayz preserve transparency and that will port out the transparent space you're looking for in an image file, but as far as integrating that in web delivery like you want... dunno that trick. I would warn however, that even with Flash, you would not be able to click 'thru' the cracked glass layer to something underneath (the changing content). If it's just straight text or pics fine, but they're would be any interactivity with the lower layer... a work around would be to create invisible/transparent buttons that would be a layer above the cracked glass layer but would correspond to areas on the content of the lower layer.

    But I ain't proposing myself to be web savvy.

    You can stack images using CSS ...

    Position them to overlay each other, then set the

    z-index: 1;

    on the image you want on top.

    Yeah, that's what I'm doing. I just need it to be transparent enough to be realistic and to overlay another image, making it look like a cracked glass.

    As long as your viewers won't be using IE (which, up to version 6 doesn't support transparent images), you should be alright taking the glass layer out of the psd, setting the layer blend mode to 'screen', resizing as appropriate, and then exporting to .png, preserving transparency.

    Then have a div in your html which, via css, has a z-index of -1 and and an absolute postioning of 0,0. (I think it's absolute which stops the image moving when the page is scrolled, css is not my strongest point). This will place it above all the other content, and will make it appear to be broken.

    You might have problems with click-throughs, though.

    I would suggest taking the black glass PNG from your last attempt back into photoshop, select and delete the black areas using the magic wand tool, then resave as a PNG. That should give you whitish lines with transparency all around.
