    Default PNG image has some background image

    I didn’t know what to call this but it’s happened before and it’s user error. I’m constructing a new page and don’t want to make the same mistake.
    You’ll notice on the screen shot, the oval with text has taken on the background of the photo. I first thought I had copied and moved the oval to a new location, thus taking some of the photo background with it. I believe that’s what I did. Would I solve this by putting the oval on a separate layer?

    looks to me like the oval and backgound are an image [which you may already know] and presumably the original oval is not... unless it sits over the original background in such a way as for it not to be noticable

    a non alpha image is always going to 'take the background with it'

    I think that’s it has handrawn. But if the oval is placed on an entirely new layer, would it take the background?

    I am not a website builder - if the oval is a vector and you copy it to a new layer as a vector then it should not, but if you copy it as an image then it will; it will become an image if you group it with something [or itself]

    that is about as far as my knowledege goes for web pages

    like the site

    Hi Bill. the problem is that Xara is exporting your oval & associated text as a jpg which doesn't have transparency.

    You need to force Xara to export this image as a png with Alpha. Use the Web Properties / Image & select Losless Compression (i.e. PNG) Also select Export Group as a Single Image if your Xara version has that option.

    Just create the oval with the elipse tool and add your text. When you export the site Xara will incorporate it with the background bitmap.

    actionit, unless it is a PNG with Alpha, ig the background image changes (carousel or scale to fit width), then the initial background sticks to the oval.

    In XPro+, with Shapes as SVG, then a simple transparency oval displays just the shape without a bounding box as you are presenting code and not an image.
