best choice of profile images

Post by opensourcejunkie »

Hey, I'm updating my campaign's profile images from the good 'ole 1.4 days, and I have a question about good form. In the long run, if I have a transparent image in the normal profiles folder (e.g. portraits/humans/peasant.png), and a comparable transparent image in the transparent folder (e.g. portraits/humans/transparent/peasant.png), which would be better to use?

In other words, is the "transparent" folder only a temporary housing for clear images that will be removed once all images have gone transparent, or will we have both a transparent copy, and a black-background copy throughout the rest of the foreseeable future? Thanks for clearing this up for me (i.e. making it transparent ;-),

I had wondered the same thing, others had questions about it as well:

The big images don't have to be in the 'transparent' folder unless you want to retain the little ones for the help menu.
