I would like to get a full picture of the image. (Including the transparent background and ice cream.) Is there a feature in Krita that allows you to do this? Thank you!
You could make a custom chequered pattern, and fill a background layer with it. Then export your image as a PNG with the background visible. Just switch off the chequered background layer when you don't need it.
Or if you'd prefer you can install free screen capture software such as ShareX which allows you to capture a region of your screen. It's Windows only. Note that a screen capture will only be taken at the resolution of your screen.
Note: I have no affiliation with ShareX
Here's a screenshot of using ShareX to capture a region of the screen. Basically, you hit the ShareX icon in the taskbar, then click and drag a rectangle on your screen to capture a region.
As others mentioned, you can't get Krita to export the actual checkered transparent background as checkered, you need to make your own checkers layer or accept that it will be transparent.
With that said, sometimes when asking for feedback or whatnot, it might be slightly inconvenient to export to PNG since you would have to find a place to put the file, name it, then move to where you want it.
In these cases, I prefer doing the following:
- Flatten the image (Right-click on a layer in the Layers pane and select "Flatten image");
- Select everything (Ctrl+A);
- Copy it to clipboard (Ctrl+C);
- Undo the flattening (Ctrl+Z twice. First undoes the selection, second undoes the flattening);
