How to make a sprite/icon sheet that the game will use properly in tooltips?

I've been playing around with a few mods, and making custom icons for them, but the [item] links in the tooltips always have messed up small versions of the icons. I copied the mod.js example to my server, with the exact example icon sheet file, and it worked as expected. I literally opened the icon sheet file in photoshop and saved it as a new transparent png file, however, and I have the same result as the ones I created from scratch.

I don't see any significant differences between the two image files, both are 24-bit PNG images with transparency, so I'm missing something here.
Original file:

My saved file:

Any ideas?

    not quite sure, it should be related with something code wise,if you want help from other people, it might be convenient for you to post it here:

    For the curious, the problem was not anything inherent to the image file, but the fact that it wasn't hosted on the game server. A bug in the code changes any external links in the tooltip ("http://") to be unreadable.

    I've included a fix in my modpack, until a permanent fix is released to the base game.
