    PShop Transparent PNGS turn White in FW CS3

    Level 7
      I'm having a bit of trouble using PS CS3 pngs in Fireworks. Although they
      have transparent backgrounds and are exported to png or dragged and dropped,
      they come over into FW with a white background. Annoying to say the least.
      Any fixes? Mac OSX 10.4.10

          How are you exporting from Photoshop? I tried Save as, as well as Save for web, and had no trouble with either (and for the latter, I tried both 8 and 24 bit). Also, make sure your background layers that you need to have transparent are turned off in Photoshop. Also, the file has to have been created from scratch in Photoshop CS3 and viewed in Fireworks CS3, not imported into PS CS3 from an older version, or viewed in an older version of FW.

            The import may be the problem. What's the story with that as a problem?

              Also,
              I am pretty sure drag from pshop into fw always creates a white
              background... Unless that is the fault of old files as well...

                Oh yeah, opening a psd file in fw that wasn't saved for the web, will also
                produce a white background even if the new psd file has a transparent
                background...
