Paste a transparent gif over a bitmap file

Recommended Posts

I have two files: One is a bitmap file and the one is a transparent gif file.


I would like to paste the transparent gif file over the bitmap file, keeping transparency of my gif file.


However, when I paste my gif file over my bitmap, gif file doesn't show any transparency


Is it possible to do it with Paint.Net?

Hey there jbteta, I have a solution for you.


First, paste in your BMP file onto the first layer, then make a new layer and paste your GIF onto that. Erase the bits which need transparency by using something like, say, the magic wand tool.


Also, you could try renaming the .gif to .png, and try paste it in then; however, I think the issue may be that you weren't using layers - correct me if I'm wrong.


Hope this helps! :)
