Why am I loosing my transparent background (converting as solid white) when I convert an image from RGB to CMYK. I selected transparent background when I set up the document and changed colour mode through image>mode>CMYK. What am I doing wrong?
Sounds like you chose to flatten the image when you did the conversion.
Don't flatten if you want to retain transparency.
Great thanks! I just save as TIFF instead of JPG and ticked save transparent info which seems to be working. Not sure how I flattened it.
When you convert modes on a layered document, there is a warning dialog that asks if you want to flatten or not.
