Any way to disable transparency ?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to open a .tga image file with Paint.NET.

But instead of the actual image, I just get the grey-and-white transparency grid.

I can see that the image seems to be somewhere behind, because when I use the color-selecting tool on it, I can have the various colors of the image in the color window, with a 0 alpha-transparency.

Is there a way to disable this transparency so I can see the image and be able to modify it ? (I should mention that there is only on layer to that image.)

Search for a plugin here that will let you adjust the alpha. It's sounds like it's displaying the image as transparent for some reason.

Can't say for sure that's the problem, but it's worth trying.

Whatever created the TGA probably mis-encoded the header, stating it was 32-bit with alpha, but then set all the alpha values to 0 instead of 255 (or instead of just saving it as 24-bit).
