Picnik changed my clear background to a white background! Help!

When resizing an image with picnik, it took a clear background and made it white. Now, instead of my pink background for my widget behind my image, it's a white background.

Is there a way to prevent picnik from changing a clear background to a white background?

The image on the right is the original and preferred (only smaller) and the image on the left was edited through picnik

I'd appreciate not having to resize within a text widget because...

1. I want them saved to the file manager for easy access
2. I want all images similar to this one to be the exact size of all the rest

I think you said you have paint.net? You can edit images there and keep your transparent backgrounds as long as you save as a png file.

actually, I was unable to download paint.net because of some reason. If I am successful at getting paint.net will I be able to resize images using numbers (percentages OR pixels)? I have multiple like images and I'd like to resize them to the same size each. Resizing with free hand (clicking & dragging) is inaccurate.

Use another tool to resize the image.

I use this http://pixlr.com/editor/

See this thread http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/any...

go check that sitebuilder url above, I just saved a sample of what I'm doing, tell me how it looks. It's the second one with pink background. It's got the same size as the original. Let me know if it looks good or if it should be smaller.
