    I'm trying to find an app that will allow me to create transparent PNGs from scratch, but I can't seem to find one. Any ideas?!? I just want to open the app and create a blank image at a certain dimension...seems easy enough but I've had zero luck.

    Pretty sure Paper does it on iPad, but I only have an iPhone.

    I'm guessing the newly released Photoshop Touch probably does it being Photoshop and all, but I don't know for certain.

    I found 1 app called Photo Reflect that can save as a transparent png. I basically had to turn off all the reflection parameters since I didn't want them and then could email the png. It was free so you don't have anything to lose.

    Thanks—can that create a new image, or does it only work with existing images?

    Basically I need something I can open up and say "create a transparent image at x width and y height."

    It seemed like you could only modify existing images. I only played with it for a minute or so though.

    Thanks for looking! There are definitely apps that can do it, I've found (Brushes for one) but the problem is finding ways to export them that preserve transparency--iOS will often save as jpeg, which turns things opaque. I ended up using Pixelmator on my mac, but if anyone comes up with anything in the future I'd love to hear about it...
