Transparencies made easy, and here’s how.

Me, of all people, making a guide to transparencies? I bet no one saw that coming.

Basically, I’m making this little guide for the people that don’t know how to make transparencies, since very few people that do feel like releasing that information. But the thing is, I use a much different method than most people.

From what little information I’ve gathered, using Photoshop from transparencies is, although effective, a bit tedious and confusing to nooblets like me. Now I don’t use Photoshop in the first place, I use Photo Impact. It’s essentially the same thing, but has a different layout and features and such. It’s not my place to say it’s better, but there’s one area where Photo Impact wins.

When you open a texture with transparencies on it (for example, Zelda), everything will be outlined. So everything that can be transparent, like her armour, will have a blue outline. Now over on the left, a tool should already be selected (the icon is a dotted-line square). If not, click it. On one of the top bars, there’s a + and -. Now let’s say to want to remove parts of her dress. Just click the – and drag a box. There, it’s gone. Want to add something in? Click + and drag a box. Now it’s back. It’s that simple.

Alrighty, so now that information’s out there. And this totally wasn’t just to make hype for Zora Link.
