Paint Tool SAI and TRANSPARENT .PNG

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 28, 2011, 4:56 PM


Various Paint Tool SAI users might have noticed it, me included, and it always bugged me a bit.
Apparently, SAI doesn't support .PNG transparency. Meaning, when you go and try to save an image supposed to have transparent areas, the picture still gets a white background.
To fix this, I and possibly other people used to save the project as .psd and load it in Photoshop or similar programs to save the file with the wanted transparent area.

Well, a quick search made me figure out that it instead DOES allow it, so I was wondering how.
After some research I figured out I was using version 1.0, which is extremely old and outdated, and it doesn't even feature transparency.
Therefore, version 1.1.0 is what allows png to have transparent area.
For some reason it doesn't have ink pen, which the old 1.0 had, but that's not a big deal since most of SAI tools are just the same brush with different settings.

So... I upgraded to version 1.1.0 and added ink pen plus custom brushes I had in the english pack. That's pretty easy to do.

You can do it yourself too, but if you are one of those having this problem and need help to fix, feel free to ask. KINDLY. Or send me a note.

I'm going to plain ignore whoever asks any of the following retarded questions:
  • Why don't you just put link in the journal
  • Is it free
  • Does it have virus

UPDATE: Literally hundreds thousands of people asked me about it, lol. I would appreciate if you check out my gallery!


P.S.

DARE TO LINK CRAP IN THE COMMENTS AND I'LL INSTA-BLOCK YOU.
