Importing graphics with transparent backgrounds
If you want an imported graphic to have a transparent background, the graphic must meet the following requirements:
- The graphic must be created with areas that are fully transparent, not white. If you create or open the graphic in Adobe Photoshop, transparent areas appear as a checkerboard pattern behind the graphics and text layers. Note that if a graphic in Photoshop has a locked layer named Background at the bottom of the Layers panel, its background is not transparent. In Adobe Illustrator, any area not covered by an object is transparent.
- The graphic must be saved in a file format that allows transparency.
Some of the most popular and highest-quality graphics file formats that support transparency are Adobe Illustrator (with the extension .ai), Adobe Photoshop (.psd), Tagged Image File Format (.tif or .tiff), and Portable Network Graphics (.png). AI format is a vector format, so it scales smoothly to any size.
Graphics Interchange Format (.gif) is capable of only one level of transparency; the other formats can store up to 256 levels of transparency for smooth, anti-aliased edges. For this reason, it’s better to use the other formats.
The JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) file format (using the .jpg extension) cannot store transparency; it always has a solid background.
