The checkerboard is how Paint.NET represents transparency.

They aren't actually part of the image, and won't show in a viewer or if posted on the web.

If you position a new layer as bottom layer, and fill it with white,

then the white will block the appearance of the checkerboard in Paint.NET.


When pasting a selection that contains transparency,

paste into a new layer above the background layer.

Doing it this way you'll avoid having the transparent part

of the selection being applied to the background image.
