How do I save my transparent PNG?

How do I save my transparent PNG?


I've got a transparent XCF that I'd like to save as a transparent PNG.  I can't seem to figure out the settings in the Save as PNG dialog box.  I looked in the Gimp help, but couldn't find any info on this.  I also Googled some, to no avail.  Can anybody tell me which checkboxes are supposed to be checked in the Save as PNG dialog box?


RE: How do I save my transparent PNG?

If you leave them all unchecked, you will still get proper results. They seem to be just options for adding extra optional information to the image.
