Question: How do you get a transparent edge around avatars and sigs?

The file must be a .gif if you want any transparency in your pictures

You can easily work with transparencies in Photoshop if you have it; not sure how to do it in GIMP though. Then you just save it as a .gif or .png.

GIF encoding supports 256 colors, one of which being transparent.

PNG encoding supports full 24-bit color (some 64 million colors), and alpha transparency (which means any pixel can have any level of transparency, and still have color value).

In short, create a layered image, with the background having no color at all (not white, no color.) Then build your image on top of that layer, using dissolve or cut where necessary to reveal the underlying background. Save the image as your chosen encoding, and voila.

Wait for a tutorial for a more in-depth process. I'm sure they'll do some up nicely for ya'.
