Transparent Colour or Green-Screen Effect


Recommended Posts

I'm loving Paint.NET so far, but there's something I inexplicably can't figure out...

Back in the old MS Paint, you could pick a background colour to be transparent and turn off the Draw Opaque option. Is there something similar in Paint.NET?

A probably-related question: how do I set the transparent colour for a GIF (or other file format that supports it)?

I tried searching these forums but all I could find was a lot on layer transparency, which is very cool, but not really what I want (I don't think.)

Thanks,

Roger

By the way, this is done sort of automatically.

If you've got a .gif that you want to "transparentize", using the Magic Wand tool + Delete works fine. Then save back into gif... Et voila.

Or maybe I'm totally mistaken and you meant something completely different...
