I have this image called shapeimage_1.png

Firefox displays it clearly, but PMView shows it as a solid, black block.

Gamma, contrast and brightness does nothing to change this.

The image is black text on a transparent background in Firefox. Though I suspect it is actually black with a transparent chunk/index. But wouldn't that make the black text transparent as well?

Two questions;

1) How do I view this image under PMView and
2) How do I duplicate this process?

PMView Pro (v3.xx) displays the transparent color as black.

A future version will let you select the transparency color and pattern, as well as editing the transparency mask. (The reason for delaying the implementation is because screen refresh will be noticably slower. Many people will not want to use a PMView version that implements this, just because it is much slower than the "normal" version that most people are happy with).

Thanks,

I'll add a vote for this enhancement with two comments. First, would it be possible to turn it on and off (for purposes of performance when not needed)?

Second, if I paste an image containing transparent areas over another, I'd like to see the underlying image show through to be assured that I've alligned them properly. Naturally, I _don't_ expect true layering after the paste is confirmed.

Thanks!
