Making alpha channels for gauges.

Recommended Posts

I'm using Photoshop 7.0 to make gauge art, and running into problems.I seem to be unable to export with an alpha channel to a format that imagetool likes.I finally gave up, and tried exporting to an alpha-less .bmp which I then load into DXTBmp 4.00.79. I then import that same .bmp into the alpha channel, and get at least something that works.Problem is, when I try to use this same "method" on the needle .bmp file, DXTBmp screws up the image and it is unusable.What I'd like to do, is use Photoshop to export an image with the custom alpha channel, but this seems impossible.Any ideas?

Stick, I'll catch up with you on HC and show you how to do this. I'll look for you and see if I can't get us both on voice at the same time.Jordan Moore
