Hello!
 +
 
 +
I contacted you because I saw your name attached to this image:<br>
 +
 
 +
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/File:Tip_Post_it_Pin.png<br>
 +
 
 +
I tried to use this image. See:<br>
 +
 
 +
https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/User:JanaStokes/Sandbox<br>
 +
 
 +
When I submitted the graphic for upload the transparancy was intact, but now isn't being perserved. The graphic has a drop shadow and it's "background" is transparent---so if one placed it on a colored background one would only see the post-it-note shape and it's shadow....not a black square.

Please advise! Thank you

Hum, when I look at the image on your sandbox page link it shows the black square. But you say on your machine, when you look at it there is no black square??? So is it a browser interpratation thing of PNG files? I'm using Firefox on an imac.<br>

Hello,

 +

The page was not meant to be a biography of Thomas Barnardo, but an introduction to his schools &amp; homes as background for a researcher. I hope you can see that tens of thousands of children were affected by his schools and especially by being "boarded out" from England to Canada and Australia. Perhaps I should edit the article. I meant it to be a guide for people who may be descended from one of Barnardo's children. I would prefer the article not be deleted.&nbsp;

PNG file transparency question

Hello!

I contacted you because I saw your name attached to this image:

Barnardo's children

Hello,


The page was not meant to be a biography of Thomas Barnardo, but an introduction to his schools & homes as background for a researcher. I hope you can see that tens of thousands of children were affected by his schools and especially by being "boarded out" from England to Canada and Australia. Perhaps I should edit the article. I meant it to be a guide for people who may be descended from one of Barnardo's children. I would prefer the article not be deleted.
