Well... when you save it to a PNG it's all one layer with transparency. However, my original artwork actually have six or seven layers. That said, I usually start of by having a transparent background and then layering over top of that, so you are generically correct.

I don't use Gimp enough to be able to help you, hopefully someone else experienced with Gimp will speak up.

They are editable by any text editor So you should be able to edit them fine

Right click over any toc file and choose Properties. On the General tab you will see "Type of file" and "Opens with". Click on the Change button and choose Notepad. If it's not on the list, choose Browse and peruse your way to where Notepad is installed and choose it's exe file.

Rinse and repeat for lua and wtf files.

A great free editor that's better than Notepad is Notepad++.

Thanks and Test Layout

Thank you Xrystal and Petrah for your replies. I had a design done earlier today, its actually my third attempt and one I am happy to show to others... hehe. Its a translucent cool (as in frosty) azure blue with scrolly purple and blue motifs in the right, left and center sections.

~Wierdlings

Attachments are an in-game screen shot and the second is a screen shot of the full image w/o the game noise. While it looks like it has a white background (which does not show) and solid blue bottom area, it is actually translucent.
