Okay, this has been getting on my nerves. It isn't anybody's fault really, but it's something I want to bring to public attention. The background color of skins should be a color that IS NOT ANYWHERE ON THE SPRITES. I know you all know this, and the people who pay attention are very good about making it a different color. But a lot of people open the thing up (probably in Paint, which won't load transparency in transparent images) and the background becomes white. I've also seen black on occasion. Now a lot of very helpful members (myself included) are more than happy to add transparency to these skins. We know not everyone has the means or image editing know-how to do it, and we want to make Ryuza's job that much easier. But when you post something like this: The job gets exponentially harder. Now don't get me wrong; this is an EXCELLENT skin. I would play the fuck out of it. But adding transparency to it would be a chore. It ought to be a 20 second process, and most of that should be spent opening the file in the first place. -Add transparency layer if there isn't already -Use color selecter to select the color you want deleted (color selecter selects every instance of that color) -Delete that color Three simple steps! But the thing is, the background is white, so if I use the color selecter to delete, I will delete ALL of the white, including that on Iceman. The solution is to use a different tool, the Magic Wand/Fuzzy Select/whatever to select an individual section, delete it, and move on to the next section. This leaps up to like a five minute job, but it could still be worse. And on this skin it is. If you look at certain sections, such as his top left standing sprite or the charge kick sprites, there is no separation between the white on the sprite and the white of the background. Even with the magic wand, it will lose chunks of the actual sprite that we would have to manually put back in (or if pretty much the entire thing is lost, like the charge kick, copy it from the template back in). Adding transparency to this sheet would take upwards of twenty minutes. Even if I'm just really slow at this and it takes less time, it's still MANY times longer than just clicking and deleting. I'm not mad at anyone who does this, even Omegaman who made the Iceman sheet I keep bitching about. Every skin you guys have made has been top notch and I'd be proud to see them in the game. But if you can't add the transparency yourself, at least make it so that somebody can without wasting nearly half an hour of their life doing so. Be a little more considerate of the people who want to help you. As a final note, if I'm stupid and missing some really easy way to avoid all that work, please tell me and disregard everything said here. Thanks.
