Re: Save as - can I direct where it goes first please

Thanks Jonathan,

I ought to make moving to PWP8 my New Year resolution.

I need a Learning Curve to keep the brain active. Better value than my daily cryptic crossword.

All Best Wishes,

Tony

Save as - can I direct where it goes first please

When I want to 'Save As' an image, using Windows 10, for the first time in a session I seem to be forced back into a folder that looks like something like the Program File on my drive C. Maybe my PC is configured a bit oddly but it hangs for an annoying length of time as all my images are on my driv...

Re: Remove shine from photo of oil painting

Thanks Den,

Took me a while to work out how to get that shape but, once I did, it worked fine.

Look after yourself.

Bye

Re: Remove shine from photo of oil painting

Can anyone be bothered to revisit this thread. I am trying Jonathan's method that uses the mask that is not saved until the overlap is applied. Reading my last post it seemed I did crack it once ages ago. Now I cannot get the overlap to make any difference to the mask I have applied. This is the pri...

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Thanks Jonathan,

I've got what I need as a .png from GIMP.

This is an example of my new Juicebox web folders - with a GIMP watermark.

Wilfried. The crucial thing when you create a New Image is to go into the Advanced drop down and pick Transparent Background.

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Thanks Winfried,

I am stuck.

I have emailed the man who runs Juicebox, which the web builder I am trying to move to.

I'll see if he can help.

I have done what you suggest but probably one tick box is wrong !!

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Gosh it's complicated if you have not used GIMP before. Do you have a URL with some instructions? What I have so far is my PWP jpg with my text in colour against a white background. I need to turn the white to transparent and save as a PNG. I read about Alpha channels but am still in the dark. Tony
