I think #3 is best as well. Ok, so I played around a bit with making a transparent png. The shadows are also included in the png. Here's a few examples with different backgrounds that I changed in Photoshop. The result will not be as realistic as a real render since for example the surrounding color will not be reflected on the joystick, but I think it looks pretty ok. The last one is the transparent png that you could try out yourself.

OK I have a question, the third picture that you posted above does not have a totally transparent background, does it? It has a faint shadow. Perhaps because it's a quick draft?

You see, the reason I want it to be transparent is because I want to combine it with another one of your great wallpapers, to make something like this:



but as you can see, the result is not good because of that semi-transparent background of the joystick image. Any chance the final picture can be totally transparent?

I like the shadow!
You can easily Magic Wand the background and only get the Tomahawk to put in every picture you'd like... but anywayz, in this image putting Tomahawk flipped due to the angle and cable... is bad! Inverted logo and button is failz0rz

I don't think it will be that easy, what with all the curves of the cable... but if you are that competent, thank you for volunteering to do it after Andreas uploads the picture.

Haha, obviously, it was just a hasty example.

No it's not fully transparent because it receives some subtle shadows. I can probably get rid of it if I move lights and object around on trial and error, but that's too much work. I could get rid of all the shadows if you want though.

No mate that's all right, you've done enough. Just give it to use with a color background then.

Ok, finished the final touches. So this is the final image. The background is now completely transparent except the shadows under the joystick and cord. So what resolution is enough? Obviously it takes longer the render higher resolutions.

upload pngpng

I believe something like 2048x1152 would suffice.

Ok, so here's the final image, 3360x2100 transparent png. There is a slight dark outline that I think looks crap, but oh well, a lot of things to hae in mind when dealing with transparency. I think it looks ok though. Click the image to get the png.

It's so beautiful it makes me want to write a poem for it. Thank you so very much!

If you ever get around to making a PNG of your mouse model as well, I promise I won't ask for anything else for a month. My ultimate goal is this wallpaper:
