Part 4 - putting your graphics into ThemePark without Photoshop

If you have Photoshop, you can skip this part (but be sure to read 3.3). If you do not, you should read this part in addition to Part 3 of this chapter, as this just describes a way to import transparent graphics without the Send and Receive Photoshop integration in ThemePark.

This really isn't very complicated, but can be more time consuming than using Send and Receive in tandem with Photoshop. Graphic elements in ThemePark are all TIFF images, complete with transparency support. Simply saving a transparent TIFF in your graphics editor of choice and then dragging it from the Finder to the element you wish to change in ThemePark will do the job with no other steps.

This is much easier than the old way of doing things, even with Photoshop, so don't run out and get a copy if you don't need it for anything else. You don't have 1-click support, but you also don't have to worry about transparency masks (which aren't even a part of the ThemePark interface anymore, thankfully).
