Changing transparency grid


Go to solution Solved by BoltBait,

I don't understand your question.

 

The default background color for Paint.NET is solid white.
A background is ether transparent, translucent, or solid.
If your background is transparent or translucent it will save as solid white if you save as a jpeg.

If you want to have a different color background use the fill tool to fill the background with that color before starting your drawing.
 

There is no transparency in the background of a jpeg image.
If you want to save a png file without transpareny just turn off transpareny before saving.

 

Transparency is the main purpose of layering images.

they mean this:

 

i have also been looking across the forum for any method to make it dark without needing to add a new dark layer every time i wanna check a mostly light texture (because if im just viewing a monochrome dds for example it makes it impossible to see most detail unless i add a new black layer and move it below, and any kind of edit will make paint.net prompt me to save when i close it, which gets pretty annoying when you wanna look at a lot of files closely). i haven't found a way to disable the save confirmation yet.

The next release of Paint.NET* will have a user adjustable transparency grid. You'll be able to make it lighter or darker.

 

 

 

 

*v5.0 will preview mid November with a release planned by end of year.
