Making an image transparent

asked Sep 20, 2013 in Graphic Design by DinoGuy (2,130 points)
Hey all
I have this light green background and I want to create a button with some text on it. However I want this button to be transparent. Like a see through button. I have GIMP installed on my system but I am no expert. So How can I make a transparent button using GIMP?
Your help is highly appreciated
Thanks a lot

You can accomplish this if you decrease the layer opacity of the transparency. First save your image as .png and make sure there are no other layers under your image. Then create a new layer on your image
