How to fill an area with transparency?

Recommended Posts

I like to fill some areas of my png-images with transparency. Since I am very new to Paint.NET I thougt that I could choose transparency like a normal colour and fill the areas with the paint bucket-fill tool.

Unfortunately this seems not to work or I make a mistake.

I would be glad if someone would be so kind to tell me how to do this.

Thanks in advance for your help.



Paint.NET 3.36

You need to select the area with a magic wand and just delete it. This will remove everything and replace it with complete transparency. :-)


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
