Help with Transparencies in a .TGA file..

Alright, I'm using Photoshop CS2 to make a custom UI, right now I am working on the bottom bar, and I have a problem...

When saving it as a .tga file, the parts that were once transparent are now white, so I have a large white bar on the top of my UI because part of it is transparent...

Some help/suggestions are appreciated...

Thanks alot,
-Tol

you need to create an alpha layer. Anything that is black on the alpha layer will be transparent.

if you are unfamiliar with layers, check out an existing piece of artwork from the default skin or any user's skin and look at the alpha layer.
