Problem with saving transparency
I have a problem with saving several images containing transparent parts. I 've already attempted variation of 'background color' setting in capture option dialog or 'transparent' checkbox in PNG saving dialog but nothing could solve my problem. The first problem:
When I save captured image to PNG with 'tranparent' box
checked(And 'Clear transparency...on Vista' on setting to remove unnecessary background), I get this image. (Loaded from Adobe Photoshop, 800% magnified)
Rounded corner is transparent, that is exactly what I wanted to do. but please notice on left arrow. It is not transparent part on actual window, but has white(rgb 255,255,255) color. HyperSnap doesn't recognize difference between transparent color of captured image and HyperSnap's background color on capture settings.
When I used other color than white as background color on capture settings, white part of captured image didn't become transparent anymore but another color of image(that I selected on background setting) became transparent.
As a result, I must select a color that doesn't exist on captured image as background color to get correct picture. It's really annoying to find it. And if there is a full-colored image such as color panel, it's impossible to save transparency with all of its colors alive. The second problem:
When I save captured image to PNG with 'tranparent' box un
checked(And I checked 'Clear transparency...on Vista'), I get this image. (Loaded from Adobe Photoshop, 800% magnified)
As you can see, rounded corner is filled with white color, not transparency. This is fine. But alpha channel information is still alive. I don't know whether you intended to let it work like this or didn't, it is strange thing that image has alpha channel info even though user doesn't check 'transparent' box. The third problem:
'Opacity' slide bar of 'Default background color for captures' on capture settings has no effect. I've tested it from 0 to 255, but nothing happened, saved images were same.
The second/third problem is not a big deal. I can make its background using other apps such as photoshop. But the first problem is really a bug. It can't be fixed with other applications because original information of image has gone. Please provide this additional data:
Exact HyperSnap version in use (from Help/About menu): 7.07.03
Windows version in use: Windows 7 (ver. 6.1.7600) Enterprise K, 64bit
(64bit or Language environment can be an issue?)
