  • Per this should be fixed UNLESS you’re using transparent 8-bit PNG. If you use a 24-bit, you should be okay.

    It’s a problem with GD, though, not (directly) WP.

    Ok, forgive me because I am a little new to all of this. Am I supposed to take that code and copy and paste it into my admin functions? If so where should I be pasting it into?

    Also what is GD, the graphics library? I mean designers have been able to upload transparent PNG’s to wordpress without a problem, why should my case be different?


    The code in that ticket was already put into WordPress.

    GD is a graphic’s library code that is on your SERVER and WP uses it to compress and resize images.

    The solution: You need to save your image in 24-bit PNG format on your PC before uploading.

    I use HITS- IE6 PNGFix but it does not work in my computer.
    Anyway have suitable idea ……..

    I am saving my image in 24-bit PNG format. And I already download HITS but its useless because the PNGs are not showing up on firefox and safari not internet explorer.

    I’d like to refresh this conversation because I need to find a solution to 8-bit PNGs.

    8-bit PNGs are really useful for generating much smaller files. Since PNG already produces quite large files, an 8-bit can significantly reduce the size with little noticeable loss of quality.

    Any other solutions?
