    Transparent GIFs for the web

      Hope someone can help with this.

      I'm basically trying to optimize a transparent image for the web. I have a straight PNG vesion here, which is what I'm trying to do, but it's around 96k - so a bit high.

      It looks like :

      example one

      I tried exporting it as an 8 bit PNG, which got the file size down, and looks OK in Safari, but looks hopeless in IE (6) :

      example 2

      So I tried exporting as a transparent GIF, but it only looks like these :

      example 3

      example 4

      Any tips on how I can optimize it a bit better for the web, and retain it's original appearance?

      Cheers.
