Xara :: Use PNG With Transparency As Photo Frame For Bitmap In Xtreme Pro 5?

Jul 20, 2011

how to use PNG with transparency as "photo frame" for bitmap (photo) in Xara Xtreme Pro v5?

I'm try to design pages for photo book in Xtreme. I have set of files in PNG format as "frames" for photos. For example, I attach one (14_v.png) to this message. In another editor I can use them as "masks" for photos - in second attach (capture.png) you can see on left - usual photo, on right - photo with mask as photo frame. How I can make same effect in Xara Xtreme? I try to use different modes, substract/add shapes and other - but no luck.

Xara :: Screenshot Of Default Xtreme Toolbars

May 31, 2011

A copy whichever version of Xtreme was the last one before the flyout buttons, copy of the default toolbars?

I've used Xtreme Pro v6 since it was released with just the pointless 3D and Live Effect buttons removed from the toolbar, and always mean to get round to putting the other buttons back as they were but always seem to be too busy. I particularly dislike the gallery flyout buttons and can never find the bitmap and name gallery without spending 10 seconds or so looking for it.

Installing Xtreme Pro v7 is the prompt I needed to get the toolbars sorted out once and for all. I'm sure I can work more quickly if the buttons are where I'm used to, but just as with the keyboard I can type very quickly so instinctively know where the keys are, but couldn't write the keys in order if my life depended on it!

Xara :: Any Way To Get Old Style Drawing Back Like Xtreme 2

Aug 20, 2013

the new Xara Pro X9, but did happen to notice... Is there any way to get the old style drawing back like Xara Xtreme 2? In Xara Pro X9, it seems you have to drag a line to make one, where in the older versions it was click a point move click another point and it draws a line between them, it was much easier to draw lines and bend them on the fly with the older version, or am I missing a step with the new software.

Xara :: Creating A Sign Wave In Xtreme

Feb 11, 2014

I need to create a sign wave in Xara Extreme or Web Designer. I can generate it with another system I have and export that to a Graphics Stream File (GSF) or png image. Not sure if I can import either of those, though.

What I want to do once I get it into Xara is apply a color to the sine wave and fade from left to right (or vice versa).

Xara :: Cutting Piece Out Of A Text / Image In Xtreme?

Jul 1, 2013

I am trying to cut a piece of the enclosed text/image. It is an h and I want to simply cut the the curly part of the h at the end so I can attach it to the end of another text f, but with me using a rectangle and the Clipview technique to do this I am getting a larger space for the entire image so when I attempt to change the colour the whole rectangle's colour changes.

how I can simply trim the end/curly side of the h without getting rid of the png style effect?

Xara :: Add Drama To Photo Using Stained Glass Transparency?

Jul 24, 2011

I have been meaning to cover this in one of the Workbooks and maybe some day I will remember.

I cloned the original photo, applied a Circular, Stained Glass transparency to the clone, moved the center of the transparency over the Datura blossoms, reduced the diameter, and reversed the settings.

In a few seconds I dramatically changed the photo.

I cloned the second photo of dramatic smoke from the recent wildfire, applied a vertical Linear, Stained Glass transparency to the clone, starting at the dark portion of the bottom of the cloud at 0% and ending just above the mountain tops at 100%.

Again, in less than the time it would take to open Photoshop, I had dramatically enhanced an already dramatic photo.

Xara :: Replacing Bitmap Fill With Another Bitmap

Sep 12, 2011

I have a screenshot, which I have cropped to a specific area to show a specific part of a window: a shape with a bitmap fill, or a cropped bitmap whichever way you consider it.

Next I have another screenshot, of exactly the same dimensions, showing the same window - but showing that window in a different state.

Both screenshots are bitmaps in my document, both appear in the Bitmap Gallery.

I'm not sure if something changed in recent versions of Xara, or I have forgotten the drag+key combination, but how can I drag the second bitmap onto a copy of the first bitmap-filled shape so that the SAME part of the bitmap is shown?

Using different combinations of SHIFT and CTRL I seem to be able to replace all instances of the first bitmap with the second: It is scary that a shape with a bitmap fill offscreen or on another page can be changed unwittingly!

Photoshop :: Bitmap Transparency

Feb 8, 2012

Using Photoshop CS5 on a mac OS 10.6.8
I scanned a black and white painting of bamboo leaves on an Epson scanner as a black and white (bitmap) image, saving it as a TIF file. The painting was compose of solid black leaves on white paper background. If I Place that image directly into an InDesign document I am working on, the white background of the image is automatically made transparent — which is exactly what I need in this case. If, however, I open the image in Photoshop to manipulate it, the transparent background becomes solid white, and I have to change the file to grayscale to edit it and erase the white background. Is there a way to import the TIF into Photoshop with it's transparent background intact?

Photoshop :: CS6 - Placed Bitmap EPS Into PSD Files Has No Transparency

Jul 4, 2013

What happened to the transparency in eps bitmap images?  I used to be able to create a duotone with transparency in earlier versions of Photoshop.  I would save a black & white image, as bitmap eps file.  I could import/place it into a psd file to create a transparent dutone image.  Now when I place into a PSD/photoshop inside the image is white and no transparency.  I'm using CS6.

I am currently attempting to fill a 3-D bit of text with a bitmap of stars that I had designed. I believe I made those stars in Pshop. Right, so I want to fill the interior of this word with the said stars, but I really haven't become accustomed to the process of gettting those mapped in there.

Xara :: Source For Bitmap Fills

I can't I never tried out the bitmap fill tool until now lol. I was wondering if there are sites that you can get fills and add them into to Xara, I have tried a few texture files, but for what ever reason Xara does not find them when I load the directory (disk fills...)

Xara :: Bitmap View / Movement

Sep 24, 2012

opened the DesignerProX and wanted to work normally. Recognized that any bitmap I do import (neither via drag n`drop or via bitmap galerie ) I can no longer move or resize with in grapmode. Only using the arrow keys. Instead whenever I grap the bitmap with the mouse it shows view extract.

In any case, I am sure there is something I made in the set-up and not generally wrong in the software.But which "button" do I need to "turn" to get the original set-up back?

Xara :: How To Transfer A Bitmap Fill

Apr 7, 2012


About five years ago I had to prepare a series of cave maps and one of the caves was in granite. I needed to have the geological symbol for granite as a fill for use in the various cross sections. OK. I made the fill (a random scattering of "V"s) and used it. And kept the file, lets call it A.

Switch to now. I am making a map of an arch that I explored last year. The map is almost finished and I need the fill again. This is map B.

My question is how to I get the fill out of map A so as I can use it in Map B?

I know the answer is possibly very simple but not obvious to me. I have tried a workaround which involved importing the whole map A into Map B and then removing the original. This worked but seems really kludgy.

Xara :: How To Convert Shapes To Bitmap

Jan 25, 2012

My question is about vector argument, I've heard a lot of times that vector is better to big drawings and also the same doubt comes to my mind ...

Many and many times We have to convert shapes to bitmap due to CPU issues when We use blends, etc, that is to say, We draw vectorial but We are limited if We push xara to the limits.

The other doubt is, what happens when we use fills, for instance the ones that come with xara, aren't they bitmaps?, will they looks as sharp as We want when we use them in large drawings?.

What happens with transparencies?, are they vector?, what about shadow tool?.

Xara :: Bitmap Filled Shape

Aug 20, 2013

I have shape with a 'single tile' bitmap fill and the bitmap is smaller than the shape (which is what I need) but I want the fill of the shape not taken up with the bitmap to be white, however this is defaulting to transparent. I've gotten around this by cloning the shape, setting the fill to flat white and placing it behind the original (bitmap filled) shape. This works fine but is there a way to do this without resorting to this second copy?

Photoshop :: Transparency To Not Transparency In Photo

Sep 10, 2006

I have two pictures.

I would like the two pictures to blend in the middle from left to right.
The picture on the left will be sharpe on the left side but fade/transparent by the time it reaches the middle.
The picture on the right will be sharpe on the right side but fade/transparent in the middle.

I would think I need a gradient transparency (you always have to use a color)

I see pictures like this all the time, but can not seem to find the correct feature or combinations of features.

Xara :: Replacing Color In Simple Bitmap

Jun 21, 2013

I have a low-res bitmap. It has a dark grey background with a plain white icon. The transitional pixels are various shades of grey.

I want to make the dark grey into a bright blue, leave the white white, and have the transitional pixels changed to maintain their respective "in between" values.

I do have Photoshop CS2 but I though Xara was more likely to be able to do this.

Xara :: How To Create Frayed Border Of Bitmap

I would like to get a special border effect on my image. It should get a kind of frayed border. With one of my filters, I can get such effect, but only with included white background. But I need it without background, just like if cropped. Is there any way to get that effect?
