    in photoshop, the easiest way to make something semi-transparent is:
    assuming you have a jpg, double click Background in the layers tab.
    click the Opacity dropdown
    slide to the desired location.

    My Photoshop 5.5 Steps

    Select the image area you want to have visible. You can do this by first selecting the background and clicking "Select>Inverse." It'll give you a good grab.

    Next, copy and paste the selection to a new RGB file. Now turn off the background layer.

    If you have PS 5.5 or higher version, click "File>Export to Web."

    This feature will give you the option of a transparent background. There's a check box to click for activating that.

    Those are the steps I take. Could be different for lots of folks.

    You can't make JPEG's transparent, can you? I thought the only way to make an image have a transparent background was to use a GIF or a PNG...
