Need help with cs / half life textures

Problem with colors and transparency.

Saying from the start, I am sorry if this thread is in the wrong section as this confused me a bit. 

Anyways, when I open wally and open a file in the cs documents called 'decals.wad' all the textures open black and white and not transparent. I am trying to export a texture with the exact colors as it appear in-game and for it to be transparent too. In addition, I simply cannot make the image transparent in apps like Photoshop because it just does not look original enough and always ends up messed up. 

In conclusion, how would I open that texture pack with the original colors and for it to be exported with the background being transparent? All help will be appreciated.

(I've tried googling, searching this site and nothing comes up that helps me)

    Hi Varabeth!

    All the textures in decals.wad are indeed black and white. When you make a map you tell the game to treat white as a transparent layer and replace black (and its shades) with the chosen color.

    You can't export those textures as images with transparent background.
