Question on Sprites

Ok, my question is, how come some images have the black and grey textures on them when you edit them and some have just white that counts as the sprite? Also, how do you make sprites to have the black  and grey textures?

What are you trying to ask?  Maybe post an example image?


I just posted before i did some research.

I'm going to guess it had to do with image transparencies.


Yeah the checkerboard is just to help you identify transparent parts of the image in the editor.
