Transparency with Recycle Bin

Posted 26 March 2011 - 12:36 PM

Okay I really like the default look of Windows Server 2008. So I have been trying to make my Windows XP computer match the style. I have been successful with toolbars and taskbar. So right now I am trying to imitate the vista recycle bin icon. The issue is I can't get that transperant look I have tried several different methods and decided to ask here. Here is what I have so far

If I remember correctly icon images have a key color that renders transparent, either that or they were based off of png files with transparency already there. Then agian, I don't work with ico files often either.

I know how to get the background transparent. It's the half transperant effect I'm struggling. Like how you see the color but you can slightly see through it? I tried getting the color and then adjusting the opacity but that didn't to work.

Dithering would probably work.
