I could use a little help getting trophies into "FWFR motif." What are the color codes for the blue and the tan?

Thanks duh, but that's a little too much information for me. I'm only looking for two colors:

The blue of the trophy base so I can make the rest of the trophy match it, and the olive (I think) of the background so I can make the null space blend in with the rest of the page. I assume those are included in your list, but I can't tell which they are (I have a feeling "main color" is the blue I'm looking for but I'm not sure).

The exact maximum dimensions would be nice, too.

I would also suggest that maybe benj might want to include this in his Accolade FAQs, since I know he once explained this a LONG time ago but I couldn't seem to find it.

White is the transparent background, not Olive, altho you could use Olive okay.

The colors listed above are in the color table of the gif. You'd really only need the main blue and the background.
89 X 30 pixel base.

I think the actual trophy dimensions are 80 X 100.

I don't understand this. I can only get it to look actually white. How can I make the background (of a GIF in Paint) transparent?

Thank you!

This is a good overview of Paint, including why you can't actually produce true transparency. It's free for a reason!

You can import your proto-transparent image into a professional program such as Paint SHop Pro or Photoshop. I think Irfanview, which is available for free, does have a transparency save option, but you'd have to check it out.

Oh, O.K. Thanks. Well, the olive will do fine for now then, until I have access to some better software.
