Creating a transparent background for a brigade mark

Hello, i've made a brigade mark 24x12 (BMP) but i can't manage to get the back ground transparent. I hope someone help me, I need it with "A" and "V" letters. Thanks.

If the background is transparent, then you need to save the image as either .gif or .png to maintain the transparency.

The brigade logo requires a .BMP image format.

Hi
BMP like JPEG is not an option if you need a transparant background, they just don't support it. Only PNG or GIF will do that as dre@ms and Tews said.
If whoever you are producing this for needs it as a BMP then you can be fairly sure that if they can use a BMP then there should be no reason why they cannot use a GIF. If you need help producing a GIF with a transparant back ground and haven't the necessary software email me the BMP you have created and I will create a GIF with trans. background for you.

Well the logo is for a game called AirRivals, the image should be BMP. I've seen many players ingame who ere able to make one with transparent backgorunds (they're only able to use BMP images for their logos)

Then maybe you should ask them how they did it, but BMP files do not support an alpha channel ( transparency ) Good Luck..

I am not into gaming but I can see a possible way that this can be done. If the game uses a video format , as most do, then it is possible to import a BMP with a colored background and use a facility called Chroma Key to make the colored background transparent WHILST IT IS PART OF THE VIDEO. As a straightfoward stand alone BMP image the background cannot be transparent. I can produce a short video for You tube to demonstarte this if you wish (can't do it till tomorrow though. Takes a bit of time and I am supposed to be gardening )
There is only one other way I have found that this can be done and that is within a MS Publisher document. You can import a BMP and turn the background transparent. This I a still version of the video method. But you can't export that BMP from Publisher with a trans. bg.
