Hi guys,

 

I'm trying to use some icons (pictures) but i haven't been successful yet.

 

This is where i got the icons: Offices Google Maps icons | Map Icons Collection

 

I want to build a 1 meter by 2 meter tourism map of a specific area of Lisbon using these icons to ilustrate where are the restaurants/bars/banks/supermarkets/etc...

 

What happens when i add an icon in the arcmap is this:icones2.jpg

They have this white area around them but i would really like to take it away. I tried to get some help from some photoshop geeks but whatever the solution, when i upload them to arcmap they just don't change and still have the white edge..

 

thanks in advance
