PNG Transparency demo

April 5th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Well, it took me a good few hours to master… but I’ve finally got a demo up and running. The demo shows transparent PNG image files can be viewed and manipulated in Internet Explorer. In IE7, the support is “enhanced” but if you have a version of Internet Explorer 5.5 or above, you can still view it.

Please note: only Internet Explorer 5.5 and above can view the demo’s – any other browsers such as Firefox will just get a standard image that does nothing much except move around the screen when you click and drag on it.

Feel free to check it out – two options to choose from – the sandbox leaves the menu to the left so you can navigate around the site afterwards, the fullscreen demo enables you to really see the whole screen.
