How to I texture this simple bitmap image?
show user profile  8564dan
Hi guys,

I'm wanting to place a warning image on a plane. Here is the image:

The image has white borders on the left and right side so I've deleted them in Photoshop and saved the image as a PNG. I made an object with rounded corners to fit the sign onto but the white borders still appear. The alpha channel of the image shows the borders as being black, so I'm not sure what's going on.

What's the best way to do this so I have a realistic looking sign?

Thanks :)

well obviously they can cause severe injury if you stick your leg in there and decide to lay back, you have to use your butt!
