I uploaded an image for my Stack Overflow account and it had a transparent background. Now it has a black background. Is it possible to have Stack Overflow default to a white background instead of a black background?

  • You could edit it and add a white background yourself... Stack Exchange uses Imgur to upload images, so it's up to Imgur what color background you end up with. – animuson May 25 '13 at 16:58
  • Sounds good. I'll go ask them to default to white :) – chrislondon May 25 '13 at 16:59

For me, the background from a transparent gif becomes grey:



If you need the transparency, it works for me in Q&A posts using imgur. Is it a gif or a png?

  • The original image should always retain transparency. It's the automatically resized images that will have a background (Imgur reformats them to change the size). – animuson May 25 '13 at 18:32
