Setting Transparent Color to a Color on Import

Cheryl Bellucci Nov 10, 2015 04:58PM EST

I am opening PNG files where the Alpha Color is a Transparent. Can I convert that Transparent to a color (white) before or during the conversion of PNG to BMP? I am using the ActiveX Controls.

Hello,

To convert the transparency to a color you will need to use two controls, load the source image into the 1st control, then in the 2nd control create an image of the same size (24 Bit colordepth) with the desired background color, then use the Merge command in the 2nd control to merge the source image onto the new background image. You'll then have a new image with the transparent bits colored properly.

Thanks for your interest in our products and please let us know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Sean
