images with background removed show image with background

Post by JonDenver »

I recently deleted my .ini setting file by accident and while I have most everything back to normal I am having an issue with transparent png files.

here is my original image
IMG_1760.JPG
background removal via photoshop
1.jpg
The thumbnail shows up as expected, sans background
2.jpg
However when entering view mode I am shown the original image encased in a white border

Every other image viewer displays correctly

I'm not sure if this is a bug or some sort of exotic feature I'm just not privy to. I've never seen anything like it. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

cheers
