I am trying to get my avatar to be transparent but it's not working. I saved my file in photoshop using save as web in GIF and PNG format and neither are working, I see a white background. In PS it clearly has no background.

Looks fine to me, no discernible outline around the avatar but then the background is white anyway.

Do you happen to have a different/non-default color scheme selected?

I figured it out. It's a vbulletin bug. If the avatar is larger than the allowed size vbulletin crops the image and looses the transparency when it saves the file. So I changed the avatar to the correct size and it works now.

Yep, I think it's 100x100 pixels for avatar size limit.

I've found the SnagIt editor to be real handy for sizing gifs for avatars.

MS Paint works well for quick re-sizing.
