Searched but found nothing specifically on this.
Problem: I have a graphic that I need to deliver to somebody for insertion into a PowerPoint Presentation. I work almost exclusively with Illustrator, InDesign and Quark, so I have no idea of file import types allowed in PowerPoint. The art director tells me they can’t handle EPS or Illustrator files in the instance, so I need to deliver the art as a TIFF.
The graphic is black and white line art (honestly it’s perfectly suited for a GIF, but they won’t accept a GIF.) Here is a copy of the graphic . I need the letters to stay white, but the remainder of the white be rendered transparent. The graphic will be inlaid on top of a gradient background, so I need true transparency.
I know that I can use an alpha channel to define transparency somehow, but I’m at a loss as to how to actually do it.
I’m using PS 7 on a Mac with OS X. I am very PS and Illustrator savvy, in fact this is the first issue I’ve ever run across that I couldn’t solve right away.
Any thoughts or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
