Transparent Pasting

Transparent Pasting

Transparent Pasting

Hi All,

I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I've used the "snapshot tool" to copy a (vector) logo from a pdf file and I've attempted to "paste as transparent selection" into PSP, but I keep getting the white background from the pdf. How can I actually paste as a transparent image into PSP?

RE: Transparent Pasting

Taking a snapshot will include the background of the image - in this case, the PDF page.
Unless you are able to save the image using the Acrobat's tools, I don't think you'll be able to get it transparent (I'm also not sure if you are able to save images from a PDF in the free Acrobat Reader or if you'd have to use the Professional version or another PDF program).

RE: Transparent Pasting

I do a print screen capture. Ctrl V to paste the image (anything)into PSP then use the eye dropper to select the back ground colour for foreground and background. Do another Ctrl C and then a Shift Ctrl E. It's a bit fiddly but it works.
