Selected transparent area overwrites colored area

Recommended Posts

When I select an area around an image it also includes a transparent area(has the checker board pattern) that when it goes over another part of the image it.

Is there any way to prevent this? I would prefer to have the transparent area actually be transparent.

If you want to paste something over the top. Add a new layer then paste it.

Make a new layer when you past it that should get rid of it, also if you don't like the annoying checkerboard pattern in the back make a white background and make it invisible once u flatten the image

It is... when you save. If you save the image as it is now, in a format that can handle transparency (PNG springs to mind, but GIF and TIFF can also), the chequerboard pattern you see here will be fully transparent when viewed elsewhere.

Unless that area isn't fully transparent - it would be hard to notice the area if it were filled with a colour with an alpha value of 2.
