Export a transparent png


Recommended Posts

Is there any way to export to a transparent png?

I have my document background set to transparent yet when I export to png the background of the image is white not transparent.

Also the matte option doesn’t allow you to change to transparent, you can only select a color value.

First, you would have to go to Document > Canvas > Transparent Canvas. 

Next, you can export it as PNG - leaving the Matte colour as it is. 

There is a switch next to the Matte color button. With that off & a transparent canvas, Affinity Photo exports a PNG with a transparent background even if I set a matte color by tapping on the Matte button. After exporting, the Matte color button returns to white -- any color setting made with the Matte button is not saved. (I am fine with that.)

“Hi,

I am also trying to export a PNG with a transparent background. The tutorial shows I can select this option under the AREA tab (choosing between “whole image” or “selection with background”. But when I attempt to export, this AREA tab option is grayed out and not accessible to me. I am a bit frustrated that I can’t figure out how to just export easily with transparent background. I am new to Design so any help would be much appreciated.

Note that the iOS viewer has a white canvas so your image with transparent background will appear to have a white background. Try using Documents (Readdle app) viewer and you will see transparent background.
