Transparency in paint?

wat.
#178 to #140 - bluelightbebop (03/03/2014) [-]
If you open a File that has a white background, you can check an option that says "Transparent Selection", and then select your image with the "Cut" tool.



All the white will be treated as Transparency.
(Paint also uses .png files. And .png files can have transparency)
User avatar #179 to #178 - tylosaurus ONLINE (03/03/2014) [-]
Yeah, .jpg's can't be transparent.

I use photoshop for it, might explain the white outline you got on your figure.

eh, when you have grown up around a lot of cousins who are girls, you realize how often when young they don't have shirts on, it's not like there's a huge amount of difference in appearance till they get close to puberty anyways, I can understand how uncomfortable it can make people feel, but that's mostly due to the "when in doubt that person is a pedophile" nature we've had grounded into us by society
User avatar #111 to #64 - bighairyfart (03/01/2014) [-]
At first I thought it was weird, but as my family started having more and more small children, it became apparent that there is nothing small children hate more than clothes. I can't tell you how many times I've had to chase my baby sisters across the house after a bath because they don't want to put on their clothes. It's actually kinda funny once you learn to not let it be weird.

Probably to add more to the sense of not being in control, to be naked, exposed, weak.
