How do I save an image with a Gradient? For some reason, no matter what file I try to save it under, it goes from being a gradient background, to a solid color(I am using a black gradient in this case, and it goes solid black when I save it).

Thanks for the help.

Uhm, I dont understand because I use gradients in everything and never have this problem, heck the sig Im using now has multiple gradient layers in it.

Hmm, to be more detailed:

I am trying to keep the "checkerboard" look after using a gradient. Everytime I save it, it goes from a black/fading white checkberboard to a solid black.

Is there a way to keep the checkerboard look on there, or does it always go to a solid color after saving it in any file type other than PSD?

Now I see, I would just make a white layer and then use a pattern to recreate the checkerboard background and make that your bottom layer. The reason its dissapearing is that isnt part of the picture but merly the default transparent background.

You can always make a pattern like the transparent background and then put in on a layer and it will save with the gradient fading to the checkered background.

Hey Toxic, I've followed your rendering guide, and just can't quite render this image. Any ideas?

I believe Toxic's guide shows to use the pen tool, which is the best way to do it.

However, if you are having difficulties, you can try the Magnetic Lasso Tool, play with the settings(feather, frequency, etc).

It should be a somewhat simple image to cut out, what problem are you having exactly, that way we can help better answer your question?

I normally zoom in to around 1000% and go around once with the pen tool quickly. Then go round a second time adding ancors and bending them to fit as neatly as possible.

Right click > Make selection and cut using a 0.2pixel feather (depends how hard the render is really)

Alot of time with the old pride pics on the yellow and orange background you need to take a bit more time and lower your feathering right down as even a sliver of the orange and yellow really shows up on almost all other backdrops.
