    How to have a transparent Avatar on loggin screen


    I want to create an avatar that can be displayed as the default loggin one se attached picture
    I try .png with transparency but it does not work.
    Perhaps I don't have the right tool for making transparency on the loggin screen


    Thanks for the Help

    I have a Transparent avatar on my other pc and it does not work either. Not sure what format will be required of the file to work. Normally a .png file would be sufficient.

    You need to capture a screenshot of your dimmed sign-in screen, use the exact same color and create a 256X256 image, set it as desktop wallpaper-centered, drag the downloaded transparent image over it and capture and crop that; set it as your user icon.

    Are you saying that you don't really create a transparent avatar but an avatar having the same background?
    So If the bacground change the "transparency" is lost.
    Right ?
