Complete newbie, please have some patience with me. I used to do end panels on Photoshop 7. They just had text and I would save them as tga's, where anything transparent would be automatically keyed out when I bring it into our video system. It was awesome! We just installed CS5 and it seems to flatten the image so there is absolutely no key. I know that I can select the text, go to the alpha channel and create the key that way.
My question is, is there any way for CS5 to do what Photoshop 7 did and just save the file as targa and take the transparency and make it a key? Using CS5, I have to take more steps. Normally I wouldnt mind but I have to do about 100 a day. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
No, because too many users complained about having Targa support transparency the way it's supposed to, and we reverting to using an alpha channel instead.
Create an action for it, if you have to do that many. It's a shame that PS7 was the only version ever to do it right...
