Can Author or ArcExplorer-Java Edition handle transparency in GIF images?
No. For GIFs used in Author or ArcExplorer—Java Edition, setting a transparent color is not supported. Transparency on the whole image is supported, but a transparent color (using the transcolor attribute in your map configuration file) will not work.
Transparent colors for GIFs work as expected in an Image MapService.
