I hate to ask this question again but I have forgotten the answer. How can you tell the difference between a smilie made for light backgrounds and one made for dark background? unknw.gif

All smileys are made up of little squares called "pixels"

A smiley intended for light backgrounds has pale pixels around its edges to help make the contours look smoother - a process known as "anti-aliasing".
These light pixels show up as a sort of halo effect on dark backgrounds though, so smileys for dark backgrounds don't have them.
However, without the anti-aliasing, a smiley's edges look a bit rough on light backgrounds.

You've possibly never noticed these things because pixels are normally so tiny.
But if you enlarge the images so that the individual pixels are easily visible, it becomes obvious.

That is why many (but not all) koloboks are made in both styles. declare.gif

and thank you for moving this. I was worried I was taking the other thread off topic so now I might be able to find this easier the next time I forget.

I just wanted to thank you once again, Just Cuz for moving this and making it a thread as if I started it. I forgot again and this time, all I had to do was look on my profile to find this thread.

It's pretty easy. If you want something free, use Paint.NET (www.getpaint.net). You can also try Photoshop, but that'll cost you about $700. If you use PDN, just delete the pixels around it and save it as a gif. Or PM them to me and I'll do it for you blum.gif .

Aiwan mean you can not edit koloboks, It's an infringement of copyrights.

Hoe can you do it on a 40 frame animation when you can't even see a white background? (It's just alternating grey and white checkers).

If at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished.

grey and white chequered background indicates that there is no background it is transparent


when you open say a new document in photoshop, u can choose, from a drop down list, of transparent, white or black background

hope that helps

So why does her little pink message have a white background if the 40 frames are all on checker background? That was my question.

Then don't edit Kolobok's, or other smilies, without permission of the author.
