Small Favour

Is it possible to edit this so it has an "invisible" background?



I want to use it on a page which doesn't have a white background, so it looks pretty stupid right now.

If anyone could help me out and do this, that'd be awesome.

Or just tell me how, but I'm guessing you need something better than paint...

Thanks a lot. It's a little spotty around the edge, could it be cleaner or...

I don't know.

OK, is this alright (see the attachment)? It's .GIF, I know, but it's because Paint Shop Pro 5.03 doesn't support transparent 32-bit color images, and this image has a very low number of colors (<= 256) anyway, so its conversion to 256 colors was loss-less.

OK, can anyone recommend a good free program that quickly sets transparency? Preferably something small and simple, not heavy stuff like photoshop and such.

Yeah, I use IrfanView sometimes, but it has some problems with transparency... You can only set an exact colour, and not "similar colours", so it usually doesn't come up very good.
