I've noticed that transparency is not maintained when thumbnails are created from either GIFs or PNGs.

Any way around this?

Thanks

Hi Jerry,

There's no way to do it currently.

I've looked into this before and it was quite complicated to do. If you could email me a sample of a gif and png you are using with transparency I can research it some more to see if it's possible for 1.24. Email dave@interactivetools.com

I would also like the resize to work better for transparent gifs.

Will this information be to any help?

Hi Aev,

Thanks for the links. I'll check them out and give this another try for the next version.
