    Usually in some browsers will show a bluish background but if your saving as a transparent png and not just a png then I cant understand why your getting any background at all.

    Ok now Im confused...When you go to save your logo, You select up top "Export" Then scroll down to "PNG - Transparent"... then it should be saved as a backgroundless graphic. Are you sure your not selecting PNG and also saving the file as the same name as the orginal? is it asking you to delete the file then save it?

    try selecting export and then select png-transparent and see if that works, just name it different than the original. dont do the export other options.

    can you upload the graphic so I can look at it? I dont know what to tell you other than what I have said already, But I can offer to make it transparent for you since you have this problem.

    i couldn't get it to work with a png format so i assumed i would need to resave it as a gif prior to upload in photo impact...the png format would blick and have a checkered background..

    A "checkered background" usually is a default setting showing that there is no background and how much space surrounds the image.
