Hey everyone. I am new to image manipulation as many of you probably know, but I am getting better. I am currently working on a camera icon for the iPhone. I am using GIMP, but many of the tools are the same or similar to photoshop. The following is what I have: Please Register or Log in to view images What can I improve on it, mainly the cropping and how can I do it. Also, when I save it as .png it asks to flatten or merge it. I have tried both and have had no luck getting a transparent background even though it is transparent in my project. You can't see it on the image above because it saves as a white background. If you copy and paste it into a black image, you can see what I mean. Could anyone give me advice on how to fix this problem and make the icon better? Thanks!
