View Full Version : open tif with alpha, show color thats in alpha

03 March 2005, 05:14 PM
How do I open a tif or tga with a alpha so that I can see the color-information that is where alpha is transparent?
When I render a tif out of max and open it in Photoshop, the parts where the alpha channel is transparent will get the background-color that is set in Photoshop. But often I got my sky in there and want to see it. Is there a way to achive that, but still render with a alpha?
When I open the image with for ex. ACDSEE, it shows my sky, PS doesn't.

Got it? Quite complicated to explain...:)

Ah, sorry, it only happens with .tga that I do not get my sky.
