You have to set the opacity of each layer in normal blending mode to a value which makes the nearest effect if it could be on its blending mode. Insert a background layer with the same color or image as the website background and you can check easely the effect but when you save the whole psd into png, do not forget to make the background illisible.

Just ungroup the objects. Then is will show the accurate opacity setting and you can set it to 100%.

UPDATE: I've tried using alternatives sprite-editing programs to remedy the issue I had with Gimp, but they all have one or two things that make still makes Gimp a superior choice: aside from Krita. So based on what Michael said, I decided to test the recent version of both Gimp and Krita on a Windows 7 computer instead of the Windows 8.1 computer I often ...

Check your white objects..... White (paper) in Illustrator has a tendency to be set to overprint. Adobe states this is so "gradients and other objects print correctly when white is used". (I'm paraphrasing) Select the white objects (or select all) and check the Attributes panel to ensure the Overprint option is not checked. And also check the View Menu to ...

Use Image>Zealous crop (if it were for just a layer: Layer>Crop to content).

I'd try the following approach: invert the selection, to make sure only the head is selected (currently anything but the head is selected) copy paste as new image From there, you can export it as usual, if the image turned put to be as expected. GIMP does currently have no way to directly export selected parts to image files, unless you want to venture ...

Solution found (thanks to Bestorio in comment) I needed to change "Image > Mode" to "RGB"

Let's do it. First, convert the file to Lab mode. Select the L channel. Increase the black a little to make it more black. I used Levels with black output to 10. Now we can use the L channel to load a selection.Ctrl + LMB. Back to Layers panel, I created two new Layers and fill then using the colors I show in the image below. alt + Shift + Delete. After ...

I have had a similar problem with transparency in MS Office apps on my HP Color Laser printer. From the screenshot you posted, I think you have an HP printer too. I played around with manual "Color Options", changing the text/graphics/photos "Neutral Grays" setting from "Black Only" to "4-Color" - don't know if all 3 need to be changed (maybe just graphics?) ...

I would remove the background colour. If it is there to simply give you and idea of it will look then there is no need for it. It would be a waste of ink, and also, it be shame to pay out for metallic stock to then cover it up. Also, the artwork set up like this may not accurately show how the colours will appear. Obviously, I haven't seen your file, but ...

You should be able to use an image mask to get the effect you want. Masks are non-destructive ways of editing photos. A mask is the same size of a layer it belongs to, but its grayscale only. Anywhere that is white will be fully visible (opaque), black will be invisible, and any grey will be somewhere inbetween. 50% grey will be 50% opacity. Import your ...

If you added a background color merely to mimic the color of stock, then remove the background before creating files for output. If you don't remove the background, you will be covering the stock with ink and changing the appearance of the stock. If that's not your desired outcome, you don't want a background.

I think you should also double check with your printer, but most likely background needs to be transparent for non-white paper stock.

Using ImageMagick's identify -verbose command and comparing the original version against a version un-optimized in Gimp (Filter>Animation>Unoptimize) The original version doesn't show an alpha channel in the first frame, while the Gimp one does. The alpha channel is of course necessary to support transparency. The original version as a comment that ...

Until our displays are a sheet of transparent glass, all images are displayed above a background that shows through the transparent parts of the image. Outside of web pages, where the background shall be whatever is rendered in layers below the image, what that background looks like is fairly arbitrary and depends on the image viewer. Gimp (like some others) ...

Convert the pdf to tiff, then printing works fine. For example via convert convert some-pdf-file.pdf some-fixed-tiff-file.tiff The tiff file will have the transparency fixed and the background if this transparent embedded image is not more black but truly transparent.

If you look at the histogram, the whites are not completely white and the black is not completely black. So you can make a first pass with the Levels tool: In the input area, drag the rightmost handle to the left, slightly past the peak in the histogram that materializes the background color. Anything whiter that the position of the handle will becomes pure ...
