    How would you do this "star burst" tutorial but have transparent backgrounds when you're finished

    tudor

      I been playing around with this tutorial and have a really fun project to apply it to, but I really need a transparent background so I can use it on a couple different backgrounds.  I tried just selecting the backgrounds and snipping them out, but can't figure out how stop the gradient layer at top from filling the entire background. I also tried just flattening it and cutting it out.  Really neither of those solution make for anything that look slick.  Is there another way to do this tutorial or way to not have a background at the end?  I'm using Adobe Photoshop CS4, thanks.
