Photoshop CC Generator plugin png24 not working for transparency. png8 and png32 work as expected but png24 isnt applying transparency instead it is adding a matte or white background to the image.

PNG24 doesn't include transparency information (8 bits RGB), only PNG32 (8 bit RGBA) includes transparency. (lousy and misleading naming scheme for PNG, but it is what it is).

Chris,

Thank you very much for your response. I also submitted my issue to NAPP and they responded the same. I agree the naming scheme is incredibly poor as a User in Save for Web would choose PNG24 as their high quality png option with transparency. I am a User Experience Architect and this is a major issue which it sounds as if you are aware of. Please put in a good work from the community to adobe's ear as they need to know the effect this has on us.

Thanks again.

Rob
