      Either program will allow you to make images with transparent backgrounds/layers.

      You can also use other programs like: Artweaver, Paint.NET, etc.

        use alpha channels in photoshop to give you transparency
        then save it as a png.

          Note that in IE 6 alpha transparency isn't handled correctly with png files. There are ways around this but if you're publishing this on the web and it's imperative the you have correct transparency you may want to use a gif file.

            For current web design, you'll want to use PNGs instead of GIFs due to higher color bitrates possible, better overall compression, and was intended to replace the GIF format in web design/development.

            With IE8 around the corner and the wide usage of standards compliant browsers, you don't want to get too attached to using/making GIFs.
