Making a Bottom Bar image

hi i'm trying to make a image for the bottom bar "image" i know it is to be 1024 X 85 pixels. But wat i want to do it take a picture and in some parts i want it lower and in other parts i want it higher. I also want to be able to see the game thru the lower parts like i see in some of the different ui mods ppl have made. there image is 1024 x 85 but the image is not the whole size and yo ucan see the game thru the image in the lower parts so how the hell do you do that i ahve been trying for 3 days now and can't figure it out i have adobe photoshop can you do that with it. If not then wat program so i use.

Thanx,
Busser

Hi Busser,

In Photoshop, you need to add an alpha channel to your image. Then, the areas you want to hide are black, and the areas you want to see are white.

Try looking through the information in this thread. There are links to some good (albeit old) posts on EQInterface from when I was first learning how to make UI graphics. If I can figure it out, anyone can.
