    Default Image goes weird behind a shape

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know what's happened here? I've used a badge and put it onto a white circle. Regardless of whether they are grouped or not, a square sized weirdness appears around the edges of this circle.
    What have I done wrong?
    Thanks,
    RobertClick image for larger version.

    You need to tell Xara your image is a PNG.

    An image that is not a rectangle and has not transparent parts can be rendered as a JPEG.

    The Xara Desktop application (XPD) approach for an odd-shaped images is to copy over the background detail within a bounding rectangle and export still as a JPEG.
    This works for most things except animation effects where any change to the shape causes the background to morph.

    You therefore need to Set Web Properties > Image > Web image type to PNG explicitly to turn the non-image parts transparent.
