    Is there such thing as a transparent graphic? If so, how do I make one?

    Hello everyone,
    I'm wondering if there is a way to create a "transparent image?" I'm not talking about "transparent background" which I can do very easy. I'm talking about making a graphic transplant so that anything behind it can be seen thought it.

    Example: I want to create a drop down menu, I want the graphic I use on the menu to show to transparent so that when a user scroll over the button/nav bar, they can still the picture on the page even though the graphic has drop down over it. Kind of like a glass.

    Is this even possible?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks everyone.

    See http://javascript.about.com/library/blimgprot.htm where by right clicking and saving the image in the middle of the page you will really be saving the transparent image that is located in front of the image that you can see there.

    Very interesting and something I'll look to in the future.
    However, the application is different.
    As I mentioned in my original post, I want to create a drop down menu but need the graphic to be transparent so that the user can still see the rest of the website when the page hover/drops down.

    If you copy the transparent graphic from that page you can use it for whatever application you want to use it for. That was just the easiest way I could suggest for actually being able to grab a copy of the graphic.
