Imagecreatefrompng - no inherit transparency
Problem: A PNG's transparency is not carried over to the resource when using imagecreatefrompng(). I've tried several suggested methods and different variations of alpha settings over the last couple hours, but so far nothing has worked.
I'm currently using the following function to create watermarked png images:
Note: The bottom area of the newly merged image containing the watermark is completely transparent.
$img = imagecreatefrompng($newname);
list($width, $height) = getimagesize($newname);
$watermark = imagecreatefrompng("classes/watermark.png");
//set new image height (image height + watermark height)
$newHeight = $height + 40;
$newImage = imagecreatetruecolor($width, $newHeight);
//calculate watermark cords
$y = $newHeight-40;
$x = ($width - 200)/2;
//makes $newImage background transparent
$transparent = imagecolorallocatealpha($newImage, 0, 0, 0, 127);
imagefill($newImage, 0, 0, $transparent);
//choose RGB color
//$white = imagecolorallocate($newImage,233,234,235);
imagecopymerge($newImage, $img, 0, 0, 0, 0, $width, $height, 100);
imagecopymerge($newImage, $watermark, $x, $y, 0, 0, 200, 40, 100);

Unfortunately I've tried this already with no luck. I tried it again as you have suggested for the hell of it, but it's still producing the same result.
