I am very new to graphic design in general and would like to use Krita to create a few simple PNGs with transparency. My test project is to create a circle (white) with the background transparent. My project is setup like this:
– Layer 2
| + Transparency Mask
– Layer 1
About the layers:
- Layer 1 is colored solid black
- Layer 2 has the white circle painted on it
- The transparency mask was painted black with a white circle in the middle
When I try to export this as a PNG I get a white circle with a black background.
Paradoxically, when I import the PNG and add a transparency layer (black background, white in the middle) and re-save it it works. I\’d like to avoid having to export the PNG, Import it and then add transparency if at all possible.
Any advice or help is appreciated. Thanks!
Update: I tried to attach the kra file for examination, but the site doesn’t allow it.
Good to know you found your answer.
For future reference, make sure you can see the transparency checkers when trying to save a transparent background. color->transparency type stuff is more for indexed color images, something which Krita cannot even do at all.
