# Medium size images with alpha

When answering a question, I've wanted to include large images that have an alpha channel, but not necessarily at their original size. When I append an m to the image URL to shrink it, the alpha channel disappears, and it looks ugly. Example:

Original: https://i.stack.imgur.com/vAsYY.png

Shrunk: https://i.stack.imgur.com/vAsYYm.png

Can I fix this?

This is because imgur provides a jpeg for the smaller version (yes, it still has the .png extension, but don't let that fool you). Jpeg doesn't support an alpha channel, so imgur replaces it with a solid color.
