hcrreardon Posted August 15, 2013 Share Posted August 15, 2013 Hello :-) I've had paint.net for less than an hour and I wonder whether somebody might be able to give me a quick 'yes or no' to the following question please? I've been using Photoshop 7 for years and have some .png graphic elements with clear backgrounds, which I use to make cover photos for a Facebook page. When I open these graphic files with paint.net I expect to see two layers - one for the clear background and one for the graphic itself, but instead I see just one layer. If I then open a photo and try to paste the graphic overlay on top of it the clear background doesn't work, the checkerboard pattern is displayed instead. What I'd like to know is this - is there a simple way to make these files work as they used to in Photoshop, i.e without going to the trouble of masking things off and clearing backgrounds all over again? Can they be opened in paint.net with the see-through background fully functional from the off? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
