Background/Saves issue


Recommended Posts

For a while Ive used Paint.net with no issues. Fantastic program. Its like a beefed up version of paint, mixed with a simplified version of Photoshop or Gimp.

 

But it suddenly started having issues. And for the life of me I cannot troubleshoot out of it.

 

Everytime I made a picture of some kind before, when I saved, it would let me save in PNG format without the spaces unused in the picture turning white. It was transparent. Which is what I want behind my pictures. And It saved like that every time at first.

 

But suddenly the other day the pictures started saving with white in the unused spaces. How do I get it to go back to the way it was? No button seems to change anything. And saving in other formats is not gonna work for the overall project...

 

Needs to be PNG with transparent background...

There is a setting in the Save As dialog box that controls the PNG transparency mode.  Make sure that it is set to "Auto" instead of 24 Bit.

When I press the 'Save As' button though. No box with any words about 24bit or auto pop up. Just the box of "where do you want to save this file at" pops up with my folder of saved pictures...... ummmm I run on windows Vista though. If that by chance tells you any more to the issue....

Wait... found what you were talking about. It was in the 'save' button. But thank you for your help. You solved a very frustrating issue for me.
