    ok I just got photoshop, and its great tool. but I've been using gimp for all my graphics up untill now, and I have no idea where some things are in photoshop. I've been looking at some tutorials to get an idea of where tools are, but there are some things that arent there.

    all I need to know is where, if there is one, is the color to alpha tool? I searched for it and heard about a whole set of alpha tools that I cant find.

    You mean inverting? Just press Command/Alt key + I (i)

    Hope that's what you were searching for. I really don't know nothing about Gimp.

    Also, make sure you got A CS not an elements version, since elements has *major* Flaws that should be included in it, For ex. Blending options. But then ppl would just buy elements...

    no I mean a tool that turns a certain color in the layer to alpha. like if you had a black to white fade as your image and you set white to alpha, it would turn to a black to alpha fade.

    and I have photoshop cs3 extended, so I got the good one

    oh.

    and no one seems to understand color to alpha. its tool that utrns a certain color into an alpha channel. so fo you had a white page and set white to alpha, the whole page would become alpha.

    but if you had a white page with a red dot in the middle, because red isnt completely white, the red would become slightly alpha
