I'm trying to make an avatar for another message board that bassically consists of a face and a transparent background. What I did was paste the picture that I wanted onto a transparent background, then erased everything that I didn't want. When I saved it, it all looked good, but when I tried to use it on the site, the background is white. Why is this happening?

maybe your saving as a jpg?
gif is the only format that supports transparency

PNG also supports transparency, but 100 times better than gif does. You can actually have opaque pixels. BUT M$ is too ridiculous to support PNG on their bower, so it doesn't show up correctly on IE.
