    Nice. Keith the Tiger Man:)

    I have a puzzle(for me at least),
    I've created a rotating globe using the Forums logo(See Here: https://www.tenforums.com/vip/1300-si...tml#post623209 )
    I find it looks much better, after I got rid on the transparency.
    But not the canvass is white, and I can't figure out how to make just the canvass transparent.
    Thanks Cliff.

    I thought to apply 'Color to Alpha' on white but if you want to keep the white on the ellipse then you'd need to use the ellipse select tool and invert selection. On each layer...

    What he said.
    I just redid it from start(takes 2 minutes), but now it get's compression jaggies on the outline, where as with a white background, it was smooth

    To make it look good with the dark skin(or any other color, like the green one) though, I need transparency.

    Oh the jaggies only show up when I rescale(up) after creating the globe.

    It's better if you make it larger and rescale down. I don't think GIMP is very good at upscaling.

    @kado897
    I got the original logo from the forums header.

    So using your advice, to increase way above needed size(1600 x Whatever it was), I did that, with the original 1st.
    Then I got rid of the transparency.
    Then Filters > Render > Spinning Globe(without optimizing for gif first)
    And this is the result(I can shrink it later)


    Original XL if too large for the forums to use as a gif.

    So I set it to the original forums logo size in the header plus on pixel on width(320x76)

    I know, I'm putting it away for now, too much time wasted today.
    Maybe one of us will come up with a solution.
    I looks perfectly smooth with a white background, but then that background is a scar on the dark or the green skin.

    @Cliff S. Try this TF logo. It's one I created as a vector so it should be really sharp. It has a transparent BG so you will need to add one.

    Cliff, this looks like you try rescales directly in GIF format. It simply not the right way to do it.

    Only in the end should you export as GIF because it reduces way to much quality, therefore not so suitable for a logo.

    If you need any advice on GIMP, just ask.
