Re: [Gimp-user] How to make transparency gradiate?

The "fake it" suggestion would work beautifully if the client hadn't flattened everything before sending it. Gotta love that, right? So I made sure "Feather edges" was turned on for the wand tool, selected all the white background, etc, etc, and it worked fine. Didn't hurt that their gray shadow was fairly close to the page's gray background. If they had been very different, I'd still be squawking for a solution.

Fake it: put the logo and shadow on top of a background layer in GIMP
that matches the background color of the page.  Export the result.

Or look at CSS drop or box shadows maybe.
