    Re: Transparency when saving to TGA

    Why not just use Paint.net?

    It is free, simple and fast to use for something like that and I use it myself if I need to quickly make masks for textures. If you prefer working in Xara you could...

    Distorted image is hard to get quite right and the perspective will always look little distorted.

    Re: Gear-Config Icon Challenge

    Personally I would use ProCAD+ on RISC OS for something like that. (Screenshot from the Windows version but, has some problems with newer versions of Windows.) Works nicely with Artworks.

    Re: Henschel Hs P.135 (Work in Progress)

    Have you ever considered to do it the other way, work in 3D software and use Xara for drawing texture maps?

    I would not worry too much about the dpi at all.

    You can change it, and it will not have any real effect on the quality unless you are also changing the pixel dimensions. On those programs that...
