    Well if you are using photoshop, I would hazard to guess you may not be saving it in the correct format. Try "save for web," pick "png 24," and make sure your transparency is checked on.

    If you're using PhotoShop, then use this PSD.

    You can also open the PSD in if you add the PSD filter to

    Once you open the PSD, there are a variety of layers that can be enabled or disabled to change colors. Turn off the background layer for a transparent background.

    The top three layers represent the content of the icon; create a new layer on the top, draw your content there, and pick an existing color layer or create a new color layer (or hue change an existing layer) to get a colored background.

    Nice PSD. btw.
