i have a friend who works on a pc and is using photoshop 5 just to do some casual graphic stuff for the web. He is trying to make an image with a transparent background and save it as a .gif.... but for some reason it doesnt allow for that. Is there an issue with photo 5 and saving for gifs with transparent background? I dont know about photo 5... its been a long while since i used it and when i did it was only briefly and i hardly ever did anything for the web at that time. So im wondering if any of you all might know anything i dont anout this.
