DeScruff Posted April 14, 2018 Share Posted April 14, 2018 Hey everybody, I wanna say Ive been using Paint.net for years (I love it!) But there is one thing that lately that Ive been noticing as Ive had to use other programs and it relates to "100% transparency" and how Paint.Net does it vs some others. Basically: If you have a blank transparent canvas, and use the color picker tool on the blank canvas you'll notice the color is actually Pure White with an alpha of 0 (sometimes referred to as 'Transparent White'), meanwhile some other programs seem to have Pure Black with an alpha of 0 (referred as 'Transparent Black'). Im just curious why this is. Has there ever been a established 'Standard' on which to use? And why is one used over the other? Its mostly only problematic when you work on something between two programs, and you expect the magic wand to select more then it has ... Well that as it seems a lot of the programs that use 'Transparent Black' don't seem to recognize 'Transparent White' when you Copy/Paste an image from Paint.net and will just make all transparent sections White with 100% alpha... - Happily Paint.net seems to not care (as it shouldn't because 0 Alpha is 0 Alpha so it gets brownie points Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
