Support for transparent background in .png format image

Post by emlarsen » Thu Feb 26, 2015 12:30 am

Does VintaSoft Imaging support png files with transparent backgrounds? I have an older version and it load the file just fine but after a resize the background is black. Do I need to handle this in code or do I need a newer version?

Hello Mark,

Yes, current version supports transparency in PNG images.

Please download the evaluation version of SDK from our web site:
http://www.vintasoft.com/zip/VSImagingNet81.zip

evaluate it, make sure it suits your needs and only then renew subscription for your license.

Best regards, Alexander

Hello,

JPEG image does not store information about transparency because JPEG file can store only 24-bpp RGB image or 8-bpp grayscale image.

That is clear.

Let's take a PNG file with a transparency. The color is white.
I am looking for a way to save this file as a JPG file with a white background.

Is that possible ? And if so how?

If I open the file for example with IrfanView and save as JPG, the background is also white and not black.

Irfan replaces the transparent color to the white color before image saving. And I think Irfan uses white color because white color is specified as the background color in Irfan settings.

For solving your task you need to do the following steps:

Also for solving your task you can create a temporary empty image, fill temporary image with white color, draw PNG image on temporary image and save temporary image in JPEG file.
