Re: How to erase to transparent?

The problem was that I had to Promote Background to Layer. Once I did that the option to have the background transparent worked.

How to erase to transparent?

I'm trying to "erase to transparent" and it's just not working. I'm trying to set a background color of "transparent", but no matter what I do it keeps changing to black. I'm having the problem with both 2019 Pro Ultimate 64-bit and X9 Pro 64-bit. I'm not using the eraser, I select an area and press...

Re: How to turn of feathering in X9?

Thanks! I wasn't getting the Feather spinner. It was Selection Type ... Mode ... Selection Style. I just noticed that the triangle arrow on Mode was pointing right > not down V. When I clicked on the arrow the Feather spinner got inserted. What was really bugging me was I knew there's an adjustment ...

How to turn of feathering in X9?

How do I turn off feathering in X9? I turned it on for something and now it won't turn off. Yesterday I had to load an image into a different version just so I could copy and paste without feathering. I've tried Menu > Selections > Modify > the various Feather/Unfeather options and none of them work.

Re: Load X9 custom toolbar into 2019

The workspace I imported from X9 doesn't have Enhance Photo, Palettes, or User Interface.

I chose Menu Bar right-click on free space, Customize, Menu, Default Menu, Reset. That added those to the Menu Bar without getting rid of my custom toolbar.

Re: What Do You Like About PSP2019?

Two ways the Crop Tool could evolve: make an option to rotate the tool or the image; make an option to snap the image back to center -- or not. Definitely a good idea! There are so many images now done with phone cameras at an angle that need to be both cropped and rotated. In that regard it would ...

2019 has both. Customize doesn't let you modify the Tools toolbar. (+) Quick Customize is specifically for turning Tools toolbar items on or off.

Re: Wish List for PSP 2020

Export and import custom toolbars.

For instance, I have a "Newspapers" toolbar in X9 and a "Book Scan" in 2018. I saved each workspace and was able to import them into 2019. But I can't have both toolbars in the same workspace without manually recreating one.

Re: Load X9 custom toolbar into 2019

Regarding the Tools toolbar, 2018 and 2019 have a + at the bottom and if you click that you can hide tools you don't use (like Emboss, since I basically retouch scanned documents). X9 doesn't have that. If you right-click the menu to the right of Help you get a drop-down that includes the same Quick...

Re: Load X9 custom toolbar into 2019

When you Import the older workspace into PSP 2019, you lose the 3 new Menu items on the top. I originally tried using PSP 2018 workspace and I saw that the 3 new items were missing - Enhance Photo, Palettes and User Interface. So I had to reset to default and made a new custom workspace. I just imp...

Re: Load X9 custom toolbar into 2019

I have been able to save an X9 workspace and load it into 2019 and it works, although it then has the "look and feel" of X9. But I still would like to be able to export and import individual custom toolbars.

Load X9 custom toolbar into 2019

Is there any way to save a custom toolbar made in one PSP version (X9) and load it into a different PSP version, e.g., 2019? Recreating it would be a LOT of work and considering the tools and scripts I normally use, if save and load isn't possible I can just keep using X9. It seems there must be som...

Re: Wish List for PSP 2020

Optionally (i.e., user-settable), floating Palettes and Toolbars automatically move out of the way when editing. (For convenience, "T/Ps".) I use two 39-40" TV's as monitors, mainly for photo retouching. When I scroll to magnify an image it often extends to under T/Ps that were off to the side at lo...

Re: How would you "simplify" PSP?

. Allow the user to change the color of the "straighten" line and other guidelines. Trying to see a black line against a background such as a census form that has dozens of lines is pretty difficult. It would be a great help to be able to set it to red or some other "standout" color. . The Straight...

Re: How would you "simplify" PSP?

I do a lot of on-line genealogy, which involves downloading images of documents from Ancestry's very extensive records. (And I've uploaded about 1,500 images to Ancestry and have about 1,000 more.) Although over the years those images and others online have gone from being scanned at around 150 dpi...
