slimshady Posted February 20, 2010 Share Posted February 20, 2010 Hello, I have a .png image that contains an area of 58*41 pixels that I would like to change. The image itself is bigger, but I would only like to change these pixels. Most of the pixels in that area are at least partly transparent, they have an aplha value of something between 170 and 255. Now I would like to replace this image by another one. However, the other image is not transparent at all. So I would like to retain the aplha transparency values of the original image for that area and later assign them to the area I changed. How can I do that? Here is what I try to do if you need more info: The windows 7 media center has some icons in its main menu that are used to show e.g. recorded TV or music library. These icons use images that MS chose. Here you can see one in action: However, I would like to replace the things you see (e.g. the astronaut) by my own content (images of TV shows I watch, like Lost or Scrubs). Now these images by MS look pretty cool and that is why I would like to have the same amout of transparency. slimshady Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
