More about PNG

I had a copy of PS on my old PB1400 that makes the right type of PNGs. I
linked it to my G4, so I was able to produce some proper PNG translucent
files that sort of work, but...

I was hoping for some control in Rev, but no go. In the Mac ink commands, I
can make an *adMin* transparency that clearly shows through what's behind
it, i.e., black text still shows up black, even with full-bright colors in
the gradient graphic. This is what I need.

But, the PNG won't do that, i.e., at 50% the text under it is washed out,
even while its own colors are washed out as well. I can't seem to have
transparency and full color in All Platform mode.

Is there another type of graphic image type or ink that will give what I
need? Any advice on this dilemna?
