How to make a png logo with transparent background?

Why adopt PNG format for your logo?

What is PNG? PNG refers to Portable Network Graphics, it is a bitmapped image format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve upon and replace GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) as an image-file format not requiring a patent license.

PNG's advantages for Web application: Transparent graphics works well on different backgrounds, and it is widely used on the web. Even though both PNG and GIF formats can produce transparent effects, the PNG format really has three main advantages over GIF: alpha channels (variable transparency), gamma correction (cross-platform control of image brightness), and two-dimensional interlacing (a method of progressive display). PNG also compresses better than GIF.
