isomorphic Posted January 10, 2012 Share Posted January 10, 2012 Hi, I briefly looked around and didn't see anyone mention anything similar so hopefully this isn't a duplicate or me doing something stupid. Yesterday I was trying to use layer blending, specifically the Multiply operation, to alter the color of an image containing sections which are completely transparent. I created a new layer over top, painted the whole thing a solid color, and then multiplied the 2 layers together. I would expect that any fully transparent areas would remain fully transparent after the multiply since an alpha value of 0 times any other alpha value should always be zero. Instead those fully transparent areas took on the solid color after the blend. In RBGA terms, I expected: 1110 x 1111 = 1110 but I got 1110 x 1111 = 1111 And here is a more visual example. This would be accurate if shown on the checkerboard (completely empty background) but it'd be tough to see what's going on so that's why the background is black here. Does Paint.NET not support alpha blending in all cases or am I inadvertently in the wrong color mode? I'm using version 3.510.4297.28964. Thanks.
