Eliminating unwanted transparency

Recommended Posts

The attached image has transparencythat I don't want.

What I would like to do is eliminate all transparency from the image so that I can then use the eraser tool to make transparent the areas that I want transparent.

I can't figure out how to remove all transparency from the image / layer. I'm new to paint.net, it may be obvious to others how to do this but not to me :-)

The layer properties (where I thought I'd fix this) show opacity 255 now but the image still has unwanted transparency.

Suggestions welcome, thanks.

Hi RoyHB - welcome to the forum!

The easiest way to wipe out the transparency, is to create another layer and fill it with a solid color - then flatten the image. Here's how:

1. Create a new layer with :AddNewLayer:

2. Move the new layer down below the original :MoveLayerDown:

3. Select the Paint Bucket tool :PaintBucket:

4. Right click in the new layer to fill it with white.

5. Press Ctrl + Shift + F to flatten the image.

Presto! One image with no transparency.
