just set thae transparency of the image you start with to 0 (the first colour) that is usually the one that'll be used as transparent!

I don't know, I have not made Icons for about 8 yrs I'm afraid

I used a generic Icon program that took an IFF image (or 2) and made the icon for you!

Thanx lloyd, i have picked some IFF screens 32x32 with Ppaint and converted to Newicons. But it is always drawing borders around icons and i can't make them transparent..

You have to choose "no icon border" either in NewIconsPrefs (OS3.1) or Workbench prefs (OS3.9).
