Best Places to Find Transparent PNG Images
As browser-based graphic design tools gain popularity among amateurs and professional designers there is an increased demand for ready-to-use transparent PNG images. Sure, raster design software, like Photoshop and its free alternatives (GIMP and Pixlr) can help you easily trace and cut out the unnecessary segments of a photo and get a transparent image but who has the time for that anyways?
