[Solved] Text on Transparent Background

Postby Adam1972 » Wed Oct 10, 2018 3:16 pm

I am working on t-shirt design to be exported in png/gif/jpeg format.

There is only text but every time I export I have the white 'page' background exporting as well into the design. I need to export only the text on a transparent background. How do I set that up as a page format or is it better done in the exporting options?

Only PNG supports transparency.

1. File > Export ... Now choose PNG.
2. Click Save. It opens this window.


3. Choose your options. Make sure Save transparency is ticked
