Creating Transparent PNGs
If you're using photoshop you might run into issues when exporting transparent PNGs.
When saving a PNG with full transparency, photoshop changes the pixels behind the transparency to white. This can be an issue with textures because of things like mipmaps and bilinear filtering cause those white pixels to bleed, leading to ugly white lines down the side of your textures.
There's a PNG plugin called SuperPNG. This will save your PNGs without messing with them.
