Rounded corners
Hello, very basic I know but:

When I make rounded corners and export the file I still have a square image, but the inverse of the image is just plain white.

So If I was to import the image into something which was all white it would look alright, but if i imported it into something black the corners that were deleted would show up white...

What do I have to do to 'commit' to the corners?

thanks!

RE: Rounded corners
Hey OfNuts - just so I'm understanding, it's always going to be a square when I export an image? So it's not possible to actually chop the corners off, they just get whited out?

When you say a format that supports transparency, does that mean I have to export to a format that does or convert the file to a better format before using it in Gimp?

Thanks

Hi,

Download the DDS plugin for Gimp:

https://code.google.com/p/gimp-dds/

create new with transparent background > then create new layer with white background > draw an ellipse in Black and bucket fill > using select by colour, select the white background and delete > this leaves your Black ellipse on the transparent background and needs to be merged to the transparent base layer.

Save as DDS and select Dxt1 for compression.

Hope that helps?

Dave
