Hi gang, total css, html, photoshop noob here, was able to put together a pretty nice looking page with all your help posted up on these forums. One thing i couldnt find is how to get my custom icons i made in photoshop to look right, they have white edges going around them and its driving me nuts lol. Any ideas ?
You can take a look at my site dragonhearts.guildportal.com  Any comments or ideas are welcome. Thanks !

Well looks like there are actually white edges in the pictures, so just erase them. I opened some of your images in photoshop and took out the white, try using these and see how they look.

Thanks Eph !   Thats what i was looking for. just need to figure out how you did that in PS, when i look at my icons i cant see the white edges. is there a function in PS that removes the white ?

I just used the background eraser tool with 1% tolerance to get rid of the large majority of white on the middle pic. then the regular eraser tool in block mode to remove the individual pixels of white, and greys in both pics. Probably an easier way, but i'm no PS master either lol.
