Hi all. :)
I'm having trouble with pygame, images and transparency.
Lets say I have an image...a circle to keep it simple (for example only).
What I want is to be able to draw the image, but with only the circle showing (ie. not a white box around it). Oh and it's png (png ftw :D).
I've tried the following
#Firstly: image = pygame.image.load('example.png') image.convert_alpha() #it was suggested to me by someone, but I didn't think it would work...but it didn't. #Secondly: image = pygame.image.load('example.png') image.set_colorkey((255, 255, 255)) #White, for example #Fail -_- #Thirdly: ''' I had been using paint, but I went on Paint.net, and cut out around the main image, and deleted the rest to get the checkbox (transparent) thingy. Then I loaded this pic. It didn't work. '''
I think colorkey is what I need, but I'm not sure how to use it on images, cos I could only find a thing on using it with surfaces.
Can anyone show me how to get transparent image backgrounds? O_o
