HI all

 So here is my problem...

 I have created an icon set and it works, however, it has a white background and not the checkerd blue and black background. Every icon I use now has a white square behind the picture instead of nothing.

 I am using Graphics gale as the program.

P.S.

 Don't laugh at me if its a simple thing to fix :)

two ways to solve this problem:

Open the picture in a program that supports transparency, delete the white background and save it in a format that supports transparency (like png)

Or open the picture in a program that doesn't support transparency, save it in a format without transparency options and use the resource manager to set the transparency when importing.

The problem is if you use a format that supports transparency (like png), but don't set the transparency map correctly, then the resource manager assumes that you do not want transparency and skips the transparency options when importing.

The disadvantage of forcing the resource manager to create the transparency setting by using a file format without transparency is that the resulting picture takes a lot more space, making a later program download bigger.

That's why you should usually use the graphic programs transparency options - but if that is not possible and if it's for a single icon set, you can use the other way as a workaround.

Thanks guys. It turns out I wasn't changing the Translucent colour from black to white during the importing step.
