    What program are you using to design the icons? The main thing you need to keep in mind is:

    A) All of your icon layers need to be placed on top of a transparent background.
    B) The image needs to be saved in a format that supports transparency. PNG24 does this. GIF does too but it needs a matte colour to represent transparency, so it doesn't work very well.

    Yeah, PNG8 doesn't do transparency. Glad I could help!
