Exporting my art doesn't display transparency/blending modes correctly

The image used blending modes for shading such as the dithering in the background and the shadows. The background is supposed to be green and the black under the object is supposed to be a shadow (i used hard light blending). What is causing this and how do i export it properly?

lets get the easiest question off the line first, are you exporting to png?

yeah? does it not work with png? i know that png doesnt support layers but i thought the export would of just been the layers being merged

no it should work, if you were exporting to for example jpeg, that has bad compression algorith and no support for traqnsparency, are you perhaps using a indexed color mode? or maybe you are not ecxporting everything but just a few layers?

oh yeah turning indexed off fixed it. thanks for helping me out
