    I just opened them up and on the right hand side there is a slider to adjust transparency. But that was Adobe Photoshop Elements

    1.delete your bg layer, but make sure you have another layer above it with say...a circle. Or you could 2.set the pref when you create a new file to have a transparent bg. Then when your ready, choose "Save for web" from the file menu, and save as a .png 24bit.

    I use Photoshop CS3.

    Make sure you can see the checkerboard background (this means it's transparent). Click File, Save for Web and Devices.

    Choose PNG, save
