All images uploaded to XpressU are converted to PNG, as it is a web friendly format (works well on a website).
📌Note! only images that have transparency when uploaded can remain transparent. XpressU can NOT make areas transparent. You can try to upload other image types and write to us if it doesn't work. Then we will take it to our technical team.
