    Are you removing the background status of the image? Or are you using layers? Maybe one layer is transparent and another is not.

    Try the "Saving for Web" feature. And it's also an 8Bit, not a 24Bit PNG?

    It should look all white in a preview or thumbnail. Or do you mean on the iPhone?

    ya in the phone. b4 there was a bit of transparency between the image and the white box section now its just all white. I kept transparency so i dont get it.

    its like they have done something sneaky to the images.

    Hmm.. Tricky. Yes, the iPhone does something sneaky with PNG's, but it also reads regular PNG's too. Have to look into that one.

    In Photoshop does it call your .png image "Layer 0,1" or "Background"? If it's background you need to make a copy to alter. Choose Select All, Copy, New Layer, Paste, then delete the "Background" layer It's a weird thing of PS that I don't understand.

    when you save scroll down till you see save for web device. that way you can save as a png with a transparent backgound.

    scroll down and click "Save For Web & Devices"

    then in the preset box click PNG-24

    then make sure that the Transparency is checked

    then click save and select wherever you want to save the file, you then will a saved png with a transparent background.

    this is what I do for all my iphone png's.

    i have tried that a few times. i am real good with photoshop and computers and usly i can lick problem like this but this time its a no go. here is another image. i am getting the transparency right otherwise i would not get it in the first image. its like it wants information around the edge but in the original there is none. also if i change the black box to a grey one it gos back to filling in white. i only can get the white box to go away by stroking the out side black.

    this may solve your problems.

    download the below file it has all the keyboard images in it (Saurik gave me the file):

    iPhone Forums at ModMyI.com - iPhone | iPod Touch, news, apps, themes. - Downloads - 2.0 other.artwork files

    as you can see in the below photo I do not get the same problem (I did this real quick), I have a feeling it is the original image that you are using or some setting in photoshop got messed up.



    I am also modding the keyboard using the winterboard app, by placing any png that I want to change in the following folder Themes/(name of theme)/UIImages

    i tried those files and same thing. But im not using winterboard. Im loading them back up into the Keyboard-Latin.artwork file. Not sure how to do this in winterboard. when i go into winterboard in my phone all i see is the 2 themes i downloaded. no menu or anything to drop images into. I changes my dialer by editing the .artwork file so im not sure why the keypad is not working. any ideas or maybe a link to how to theme with winterboard.

    like for instance how do i make a theme folder and put the images i want in the folder and make winterboard know that they are to replace what is in the .artwork folder?


    cheers

    to add your own themes goto Library/Themes/ and add a folder with name of the theme.

    You should see this:

    Library/Themes/(name of theme)

    then you want to add a folder titled UIImages, So you will have this path

    Library/Themes/(Name of theme)/UIImages

    you can then open the 2.0 file I posted and change any image you want (that includes the keyboard and other.artwork images) and then place the image inside the UIImages folder.

    You will also want replace any .artwork with stocks ones.

    you have to use the files from the 2.0 That I got from Saurik because the images have to be saved with there name.

    to have a wallpaper you name whatever image "Wallpaper.png" and put it in your theme folder.

    you can also copy the info.plist from the stock theme and you can edit it to change the color of fonts, hide fonts alltogther, and change the type of font.
