How do I get rid of the White background in my forum sig?

[Quote:] well i was making a forum sig -- i saved it as a .jpg, but when i put it on the forum it was a white background still. i had a transparent background so i figure that only the sig will show, not a white background. how do i get rid of that white background so when i put it on the forum the sig stands on its own. thanks.

Go back to your Photoshop psd file, select the white background layer, click anywhere in the background layer with the Magic Eraser Tool - this will take out all the colour and leave a transparency behind.
Now transfer the file to ImageReady and optimise it as a GIF. Should keep the background transparent.
Make sure to save it as a GIF file -- remember only GIF (or PNG) files can have transparency on the web!
