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.


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)
