    Default Transparency on Stretched Background

    Not much explanation needed: transparent .png on a stretched background produces a square of the unstretched background around the .png. It's the Alpha channel thing, but what do you do to work around it?

    I searched the forum for this as I presume it's been asked before. Also not sure if it's a graphics question or a web design question.

    Yes, I still need to clean up around the chunks of soy/meat

    Ah yes, encountered this many times.

    You actually need to tell Xara that this png you uploaded is to be used as a png.
    Sounds silly but that's how it is.
    Select your image, go to web properties -> image and choose png.
    Default sets it to Let Xara choose....and they always choose jpg.

    Graag gedaan!

    Honesty prompts me to tell you that I found the answer on here some time ago. Don't know what thread anymore, but the credits go to this forum!

    That will apply to a lot of answers. I did search before asking, but after following the Google rule of 'if it's not on the first page, it's invisible', I asked.

    Info Re: Transparency on Stretched Background

    Even with PNG's applied to images and stretches with transparencies, I can still break it.

    Have a look at https://gradientlab.space/ instead. Simple example for the red block: CSS3 - AtAStretch.xar

    Acorn
    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: occasionally serviced XDPX, purposely unserviced XDPX12 & XDPX11 (32/64-bit), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7 and lots of 'permanently-owned' licences back through time (to CC's Artworks)
