I'm going to try to make as much sense as possible. if you don't get what i am asking let me know and i will try to explain it differently.
what i am trying to do is modify the default template (kubrick) to match my current website. (editing the images) everything has gone perfect so far except one thing. the footer image. what i have done is replaced the original "kubrickfooter.jpg" with my new "kubrickfooter.gif"
reason for this is my new footer image has rounded corners with transparency so my background will show up in the missing corner pieces. the issue i am having is wordpress seems to always put a white (default) box behind my image. making square borders... i want round. i have looked over the css for hours changing things to see if i can figure out the problem. i tried changing everything that was white to another color and it would sometimes make the box the color. but when i changed to transparent it would go back to white.
any help would be appreciated as this is driving me crazy.
