    Here is your image with a transparent background.

    When you save as gif make sure "Transparent" background is selected.

    I also suggest changing your font, or making sure that the Anti-Alias is set to crisp or smooth, cause it is too rigid.

    hi faisal,

    you really need to specifiy a Matte color for text saved with transparency. This needs to be as close as possible to the color of whatever the text is over - ie if the text is over a blue background you need a blue matte.

    If the text is over a complex image or pattern then pick the mean average color and use that. If your text is nice and clear the matte will be minimal and you won't really notice it.

    Failing that, try making the bg of the text the same as the bg of the page element it is over.

    its not a "bug" of photoshop - its a limitation of the GIF format. Roll on PNG24 support thats what I say!

    i don't develop applications, only web sites and occasionally browser based web applications.

    For web applications and on the rare occasions when I have to use a PNG there are ways to force support. Try
    this article from a list apart which gives you couple of different ways to implement PNG properly. I'm sure they can be adapted for Java development

    Faisal,

    It is not impossible to create transparent gifs, in fact most gifs are transparent. As for the low quality of the image, that is due to the fact that the text was not properly done. I will upload a different gif that has a transparent background as well as text.
