how do you create a layer with nothing?

Recommended Posts

I need a layer with rgb ,hsv and alpha channel all in 0

I tried to manually adjust all to 0 and use paint bucket but it doesn't do a thing

and every time I create a new layer it automatically fill rgb with 255, I can't change it at all


how do I do it?

Correct, new layers are filled with Transparent White.  If you delete all pixels in the layer, they will become Transparent Black.



There's also a plugin that will do it:

FYI since 4.2.15 paint.net erases with transparent black.


Ctrl + Shift +N (create new layer)

Ctrl + A (select the entire layer)

Delete (or Edit > Erase Selection)



List of changes since 4.2.14:


  • Fixed: Edit -> Erase Selection will now fill with transparent black (#00000000) instead of transparent white (#00FFFFFF)
