Transparent png shadows are filled


Question

When I store transparent images with shadows as .png I have filled areas instead of soft edges. It seems like it is a saving/compression or whatever problem because the .psd is in photoshop really fine and the same .psd worked for a transparent when he created the transparent .png.

This is how it looks as .png: http://puu.sh/gZdrh/8b8fc16424.jpg

This is how it looks in photoshop (red background): enter image description here

What is causing this problem? It's a RGB / 8bit .psd

Blending modes do not translate to PNG images. I would guess that you've se the shadow to Multiply within Photoshop.

Your shadows need to be set to Normal for the blending mode. This may mean you need to better mask the shadow layer or remove the shadow entirely and recreate it without the white areas.
