How can I make a FlashAlbumExporter background transparent?

I really like the very cool FAE (as suggested on this most excellent forum) but the gui offers no choice as for background opacity. A little search on the net reveals a few ideas but none of them seem to work. I am using the following iframe code in iWeb:
<iframe src=
style="width:1000px; height:900px;
scrolling="auto" >
I don't know if the bg transparency is controlled in this iframe code, in the index.html file created by FAE or in the xml file created by FAE. So far I have tried:
Remove the background-color: #181818; from the index.html didn't make any difference.
Adding <bgcolor transparency="0"> in the xml made simpleviewer not display at all.
Another web site was discussing using html in the HTML snippet widget instead of iframe and it seems to address the transparency issue. But it seems rather old and is setup to use a movie instead of a photo album so I'm not sure how to convert it. Here is that code:
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=" ersion=6,0,40,0"
WIDTH="700" HEIGHT="700" id="MyMovieName">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="MyFlashMovie.swf">
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<EMBED src="MyFlashMovie.swf" quality=high WIDTH="700" HEIGHT="700"
NAME="MyMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" PLUGINSPAGE="" base=".">
Any idea how I can make this bg transparent so my bg will show behind the photos instead of the default dark grey?
The current version is here in case that helps:
Thanks for any help.

If that's what you're doing, then just turn off the visibility of the layer that you made the selection on - most likely the BG layer by clicking on the eye icon in the layer's pallet.  You change the bg layer, as I mentioned above, and after you make your selection, click on the add layer mask icon in the layer's pallet,  This will add a layer mask with your selection.  If you hold alt/opt while doing this, it will create a inverse layer mask.

  • How do I make a solid Background Transparent?

    Hi All...
    I'm trying to make an image I have which has a solid background (and a few other details inside it) transparent? so I can still see behind the graphics in the image yet the background at the same time...  I know I've seen it before where the image sort of floats above the background...  But I don't know how to accomplish this in photoshop.

    Sorry.  That was my mistake.  I assumed that the text was on a perfect circle, but it is in fact on an elipse.
    I worked through to make sure I had not made other eronious assumptions!
    The first thing I did was add some canvas because the text was so close to the edge.  Easy enough to trim afterwards.
    Then I used the Magic wand to select the blue.  I did not care about the text as I was going to replace it.
    I inverted the selection so the fish was selected (Ctrl/Cmd Shift i)
    Then refine Edge.  Get close, then use the Expand selection slider to get as much of the fish as you can, and make sure you click on Decontaminate Colors to remove any trace of blue.
    Copy the fish to a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd j)
    Add another layer above the fish.  Ctrl/Cmd click the fish layer to select it, and go Edit > Stroke with one pixel black inside.  (If the original is larger than the one you posted, you may need a thicker stroke.
    OK you now have a nice crisp fish with a good solid black outline.
    use the eliptical Marquee tool, and drag to get as close to the inside the text as you can.  You can use the space bar to move while dragging.  if all else fails, you can Transform Selection to improve the fit.
    Go to the paths panel and choose 'Make work path from Selection.
    Select the type tool (I used Bradley hand ITC at 5.2mm) and click at the top of the path and insert your text.
    I left a couple of steps out for clarity.  I erased the old text, for instance, but while adding the new text, I inserted a layer between the type layer and original background layer and filled it with white so I could see the new text more clearly.  Then I deleted it when finished.
    I didn't add the bubbles, but it is really easy to do so with brushes I linked to further up this thread.  I hope thatclears it all up.
    BTW  The one on the right has a transparent background.  Other than the fish, the rest of the image on the left was created from scratch.

  • How can I make a top layer "transparent" to the end-user?

    Hi guys,
    Got a quick question.
    I'm working on a custom card builder and was wondering if there was any way I could keep an uploaded image editable to the end user. The end-user will be able to choose what template they'd like to frame the image with. The problem is, even with transparency that chosen frame acts as a layer, and once the uploaded image has been placed onto the staging area, the end-user loosing the ability to edit/scale/skew that image. I'd like them to be able to still do that even with the template above their image.
    Can anybody think of a solution to this? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

    You'd literally need to chop each frame up. To keep things reasonable to update you can use Photoshop to slice the graphics, saving them to external PNGs to import in. If a frame has 4 edges, you cut out the 4 sides, import into Flash and reassemble them inside a single Sprite or MovieClip. Any area inside that sprite that has no actual objects will be true transparency and won't invoke a click action.
    Keep in mind, hitboxes are rectangular. If you have an oval frame where the edges require you to create bitmaps with transparency on their edges, that will be clickable. If you don't immediately understand what I mean by that just draw a circle in flash, convert to clip. Now draw your cursor around what you consider the 'top' portion of that frame and notice how much of the inner fill you also capture at the same time. That will all be clickable. So the user may "see" their picture behind the frame but when they click they accidentally get the frame instead.
    Picture worth a thousand words (random net image):
    If you cut this oval frame into 4 pieces (this being the top obviously), the transparent area you see in the frame will need to be part of the hitarea for the frame. That can be just as confusing to customers in this situation. If most of your frames have little to no transparency (very squared up) then it won't be a problem. Although just like the problem you're having now, any bitmap transparency WILL be clickable even if you cut the sides up. The center where there is no bitmap can be clicked through to mess with the picture behind the frame.
    This sort of makes the transparency detection a bit more desirable.

  • How can I make a paragraph rule transparent?

    I have a requirement to use a paragraph rule but I need it to be transparent. I cannot figure a way to do this or via any other technique in indesign. In reality I want them to be included in a character or paragraph style.
    Your help is appreciated. I am on CS5.5 and an indesign veteran of some 12 years now...

    My method is a bit of a tricky method, but I think it works.
    Select the text frame, and choose Edit>Place and Link Story.
    You are given a Loaded Cursor with identical text.
    Place this in the exact same location and send it to the back.
    Give the text at the back a Paragraph Rule above, to suit. And give it a white rule.
    Change the Back Frame transparency to suit.
    Then Make sure your original text frame is on top.
    When you update the text in the main frame - then you can update the text via the Links panel so the rule behind suits
    Here's a file to test it with

  • How can I make a tabbed pane transparent ?

    I have a tabbed pane placed on a JPanel with an image background. I added a tabbed pane with tabbedPane.setOpaque (false), however I still can't see the image behind the components that were added as tabs in the tabbedpane. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Here's a simplified version of the code:
    public class Example extends JPanel {
         public Example() {
              tabs = new JTabbedPane();
              tabs.setOpaque (false);
              JPanel tp1 = new JPanel();
              tabs.addTab ("panel 1", tp1);
              this.add (tabs);
         public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
              // Paint background image

    Perhaps the opaque property is internally overset by the tab pane.
    Try this:
       public class Example extends JPanel {
          public Example() {
             JTabbedPane tabs = new JTabbedPane() {
                public boolean isOpaque() {
                   return false;
             JPanel tp1 = new JPanel() {
                public boolean isOpaque() {
                   return false;
             tabs.addTab("panel 1", tp1);
             this.add (tabs);
          public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
             // Paint background image
       } Regards.

  • How can I make images transparent in my documents?

    I've got InDesign CS5.5 and like to save my banners, etc. that I create as a jpeg but when I try to use them on something else it has a white background.  How can I make sure the backgrounds are transparent?

    I didn't know that about the png in CS6.  Thanks for letting me know.
    Unfortunately, I don't have Photoshop.  I just recently purchased Photoshop Elements.  I haven't really done much on it as I have other projects I need to work on. Do you know if I would be able to convert in that program?
    Wish I could afford a newer version of InDesign but I can't.

    It would be a great help if you can share your code of 'transparent bufferedimage' with me. I have been trying to create a transparent gif since long. Now I think I can create a transparent bufferedimage and display it.

    When talking about a specific image posting the image may be useful.
    One can use a Layer Mask and add a white Layer underneath.

  • How can I export a file with transparent background?

    Hi all,
    I know InDesign doesn't allow to export a PNG file, but I need my file to be in image file format with transparent background.
    I'm still learning so I am stuck here. How can I export a file with transparent background?

    If you can't get the PNG file export to work, you can export a pdf and open it in Photoshop, from there you can save it as whatever you like.

  • How to make a white background Transparent

    I would like to to select the blocks and enclosed data to copy and paste in a poster, leaving out the white background.  In other words make the white background transparent. 
    This is just a plain low res jpg.
    This seems like it would be pretty easy but not for me.  Is there a tutorial that could guide me through this?
    Thank you for any guidance you can give me.

    I'm probably not being clear about what I'm trying to do.  Here's a typical poster.  I use the magnetic lasso to select an image, copy and paste it resulting in this.
    This time it's to be a team picture with small head shots of each player, action photos in the background, similar to this.  I can do all that but I wanted the tournament chart to lay on top of the background with just the boxes and enclosed info showing.  I know I can use the magnetic lasso or the poly lasso but I don't have enough patience for that.

    How can I customize the folder - Background (i.e. transparent) of my 5s WITHOUT a jailbreak ?

    You can't do any more than what is permitted in Settings regarding the backgrounds. If you would actually JB your phone for something so trivial, risking virus and worm attacks, violating your license agreement, voiding your warranty, risking bricking your phone or making it unstable and excluding any paid repair service from Apple I question your judgement.
