Funky transparency problems

Unread postby pentium » Mon Mar 30, 2009 2:21 pm

I don't know if it is because I'm using Quicktime 4 or because I'm using OS 9 or what but when I view some transparent images (it does not seem to happen to all transparent images) I get all sorts of funky glitching where there should be a transparent space.

Example listed below.

This is an image that uses transparency

On my linux system it looks perfectly normal.
Now if I try to view it on my mac with either Picture Viewer or Photoshop 3.01 (I don't open pictures with anything else)...

Uh... :?
What happened? The image changed somehow.
Is this just a problem with how the mac is reading the pc-made image file?

If it helps any, I tried upgrading to Quicktime 6 Pro and I'm still getting the issue with transparencies.

The result of playing Bubble Bobble too much. ;)
According to the artist it's someone he knows turning into a bubble dragon (hence the line above ;) ).
Weird, yes, but I was in a rush and I needed an example of the problem I was getting and it was the first thing I found.

Let me try and open it with both Mozilla and IE and see what happens.

EDIT: Mozilla could display it fine but IE used a Quicktime plugin and it gave me the image with the mentioned problem.
Still, I don't see why a mac is having so much trouble displaying an image with transparency/alpha channeling.
