Uh, I normally don't ask for PS help since I already manage myself, but I've been investgating how to make transparent sprays fro Team Fortress 2 and realized my old version of Photoshop can't make Alpha channels for TGA files.

So, my request is quick. Can someone make an alpha channel for this file and save it as a 32-bit TGA?

Know it's not a usual request, but a TGA is the file type that VTFEdit needs.

Okay, now the explanation on how to do it:

Have a transparent image ready, press CTRL+LMB (left mouse button) on the layer, red part selected from the pic

user posted image

this will make a selection, now go to upper menu, Select->Save Selection, now you can save the image

in the 'save as' menu, make sure you have alpha channels selected, and 32 bits/pixels, this is it, should work.
