Removing Alphas from image.

Post by jeeg »

I often convert pictures in jpg from tga using the conversion button.
If the tga has a alpha map when converting to jpg part of the pictures disappear (because the conversion always use the alpha map if it exists).

Among the option of the conversion I cannot find "discard alpha maps". I want an option that automatically remove alphas when converting pictures.

Thanks.

  2. ToolsOptions...Read/WriteGeneralRemove alpha channel if output format doen't support it
  3. ViewUse alpha channel
