I hate having to edit images with a transparent background to a solid white background just so that it works properly on HubPages.
This obviously has to do with the fact that PNG images are converted to JPEG, which does not support transparency. There are 2 solutions:
- Turn all transparency to solid white automatically
- Stop converting PNG to JPG if it contains transparency
Should look like:
Yes, this bugs me too! Have had this numerous times.
This annoyed me too when I started writing my first hubs. Thanks for reminding me about the problem; I'll put together a fix for it. That fix will be your first suggestion - convert transparency to white instead of black - because leaving images as PNGs is problematic for several reasons. I hope to have this done by the weekend: it's not a very large project.
However, I don't see any good way to make the solution "retroactive": if you have any existing images they will be stuck as black unless you re-import them.
This happens to me when I upload a .png image to Hubpages.
I would say that the Hubpage format is pretty simple layout wise and could do with a few upgrades maybe - including what would appear to be quite simple adjustments like the transparent pics ?
This should be taken care of now: I was able to import a PNG with transparency, and the white background was preserved. Try it out, and let me know if you have any further problems.

I have learned to accept that there are going to be ups and downs and prepare for the inevitable downs....

I've made about $8 here and openly question the transparency of how Hubs get their ratings. At Bubblews, I've made $75 in half the time and have over 1,000 followers. The ease of use of the two sites is staggering. Plus, my rating at HubPages continues to rise the less I post.

Obama didn't want info from NOAA about the BP oil leak to reach the public, so he blocked it. What happened to the most transparent WH ever?http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6953Q720101006

I was initially unable to upload the public domain image http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c … ssword.png as it contains transparent borders. The error message indicated that the server was not responding as expected. So I tried again a day later but it was the same message. I now...

I just feel that the Hubscore/Hubberscore system should be obsolete and rendered useless and be replaced with a new system. This Hubscore/Hubberscore business is keeping everything apart. Instead, we should have a rating system, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. So 5-star articles,...

I have an old article that contains many images. Some are small sized on purpose. They are head shots of people in our group of members. It was published 2 years ago and was featured. Recently, I noticed it became un-featured and the reason given was that it contains too small images.This happened...
