Transparency problem when converting from gif to ico

Post by moinsmoins » Sun Jun 13, 2004 1:26 am

Hi,

When I try to convert transparent gifs to ico files, I get some black "zones" in parts that should be transparent.
Here's a sample gif that causes this problem: Image

Is this an issue of nconvert or do i need to use a specific options or...??

I can see that ;)

Are you planning to fix it - if you know what the problem is - .. unfortunetaly i'll be of no help coding, but i could help testing, i have a small app that needs to batch convert +/- 200 transparent gifs to ico's :)

Cheers,

greg
