Just choosing the option 'transparency' will not help you; you need to
choose a color to make transparent in PhotoShop.
However, if you really want to make stunning graphics with full 8-bit
transparency and millions of colors, you shouldn't use GIF, but PNG. In
PhotoShop 7 you can make a layered graphic with transparency (so
remove the opaque bottom layer named 'background' or turn it into a
normal layer and erase some parts of it to see what I mean.) Then
choose 'merge visible' from the layers palette - not 'flatten image'.
Then save the image as a PNG file and you have an image with the same
transparency you had in PhotoShop.
