Don’t

Images with a ring of transparency around the outside will be cropped and expanded, resulting in a mismatch between the final product and your original vision.

File Layers need to be flattened

Transparent backgrounds are still an important part of designs that have multiple parts. So that you have absolute control over the look of your final product, once you’ve got each part in place be sure to combine the elements into one layer so their position is locked in.

You can have transparent backgrounds between graphical elements on your design. Just be sure to flatten the image into a single layer once you have each element in place.
