A while back I read about a program that allowed you to change the
default background color that IE uses for semitransparent PNG images. For
example if I create a PNG image with alpha channels in Photoshop and then
try to display that in IE it uses a gray background (the default Mosaic
background color). With this program one was supposed to be able to change
that gray to any color you wanted (for example white). Does anyone know the name
of this program or another one that can do the same thing?
I’m also looking for a program that allows me to optimize PNG images.
This can be achieved by changing the color palette and/or using the
compression format that is part of the PNG specification. Photoshop does
not allow me to do this without losing the alpha channel info and
that is obviously not a viable option.
While on topic. PNG is a first class bitmap format in WinFX. This
means that Windows users will be able to see the web as it is supposed to be seen
