JPG + Transparency == Too Bad

May 2, 2007

Well, I didn’t really think about it, but when I was trying to color my chocobo…  But I digress, I should probably start at the beginning.

The small, cheesy app that I was trying to create with XNA as a jpeg picture of a chocobo.  Using the Xbox 360 controller will move the picture around the screen.  The picture has a white background and I was trying to update it so the white would be transparent.  Using Paint.NET, I was trying to set the transparency on the background with no luck.

Just googled it and, of course, it’s not possible to do that…  I’m going to change the image to a targa and set it…
