Image transparency

  • When I import images into a scribe that's using a textured background, the texture always shows thru, even with 100% opacity on the image. How do I prevent this?


  • Hi Steven,

    you cannot prevent this - the texture effect will show up on any image drawn on the canvas.

    The effect is more noticeable with some textures than other - but it is part of the way the software works.

    If you would like to see a feature to 'Remove canvas texture from images' you can post a new question and select 'Ideas and feature requests' in the 'Post topic in' section.


  • Thanks Matt, I will.


  • Steven,
    Here's something you could try:
    1) make a textured  background image ... maybe about 1200x1200 pixels in size,
    2) save it as a jpg, png or svg,
    3) add it as your first element with a zero draw time and
    4) scale it really large on your canvas so you can
    5) add all other elements at a smaller size on top of the textured "background image".

    The background texture would always remain behind the other drawings.  I don't know how that will affect memory usage, but if your texture image has a pretty low file size it might work.

    (this would require some experience with photoshop or gimp or illustrator or inkscape)
