    What you do is, cut out the areas you want as transparent, save as .png, import it into VTFEdit with the right settings (IDK, haven't made a spray in ages :S) and export as .vtf, make a .vtm, and fill it in with the right stuff. Then put it in your sprays folder (which is somewhere, IDK.)

    Or... you could just save it as a .tga and import it in CSS Options. It's a hell of a lot easier

    There is a tutorial in the tuts section of making transparent sprays with GIMP.
    Dance, it's all you can do.

    o_O Works for me - just cut out the bits you want trans and save as .tga (making sure the background is transparent) Dunno what prog your using so it might not work - works for PS 7.0

    I thought you had to make a seperate alpha layer if you wanted to make a .tga transparent. My way is bullet proof, it always works for me.
