OS X :: Making An Image Transparent/exporting A Transparent Image?

Feb 19, 2010

I need a transparent hand print (different colors also) for a project. I've gotten a hand print and used a guide to try and make it transparent using Gimp but I can never export it.

I just need a simple program (I have Paintbrush, Gimp, etc) in order to make things transparent!

OS X :: Making Disc Image To Use On Another Mac?

Feb 5, 2009

I have a few programs on their original DVD discs that I want to put on another computer w/ a broken disc drive. In theory, can I create a disc image w/ the disc utility program, copy that file onto an external hard drive, and then put it on the other computer that way and have the program as workable "disc" (but it will really just be the image of the disc). On a side note, if I got a new disc drive on that computer, would I still be able to burn that file to a DVD disc in the future to create an exact replica?

OS X :: Making An Image Of A Hard Drive?

Apr 8, 2009

i got a lenovo s10 (windows xp) and i want to make an image of the hard drive using my mac. I have no idea if this is even possible. i vaguely recall someone once telling me that if you connect any computer via firewire to a mac that you could take an image of the hd on that computer. I realize that the s10 doesn't even have firewire, but i was wondering if this was true or not.

OS X :: Way To Make Transparent Icons?

May 11, 1990

I was trying to replace an icon on a classic app, so that it wouldn't look so ugly in the dock. I made a picture that had some transparency in it. I tried copy and pasting from both a .psd and a TIFF into the info window. It almost worked. The app now has a 128x128 icon, but the trasparency was replaced by white. Is there any way to get the icon to retain the transparency? Alternately, does anyone have an OSX icon for Dreamweaver and/or Flash?

OS X :: Transparent Menu Bar Is Flat?

May 21, 2009

I recently restored the default Leopard theme files after uninstalling a theme via Magnifique. However, I noticed that my transparent menu bar no longer has a gradient, though the menu bar has a gradient if I turn off transparency. I have re-enabled Core UI and transparent menu bar. I did another restore of the Leopard theme files using the iLeopard uninstaller. I have attached a screen clipping. My menubar is on the left. What it is supposed to look like is on the right.

How do I restore the gradient for the translucent menu bar? Is this done by setting an environment variable? I found this article:[URL]

Apparently you get a flat menubar if you disable transparency manually. Is there a similar way to restore the gradient when you re-enable the transparency?

OS X :: Transparent Icon For A Folder?

Jan 25, 2010

I currently have a .PNG icon, and I would like to assign it to a folder, so the folder icon would be this one (It's a snow flake, which at first glance, makes me think of Winter Quarter for school, aka, the folder name.)

I know how to assign the icon to the folder, without any problems. (Right Click-->Get Info-->And drag the icon to the Top Left). However, when the icon (which is transparent, I'm 120% sure) is displayed, the background is white. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, except the icon also appears on my Finder sidebar, since it's a folder I use a lot.

Using Icon Composer (/Developer/Applications/Utilities), I tried making it an icns, just to see what would happen. But, like most icons I've tried, this appears when I drag it. And I assure you, this is not the icon I'm trying to make the folder appear as:

So, my question is, how do I transform this transparent PNG icon to be transparent when it's assigned as an icon for a folder. Incase it matters, the icon is 256x256, with a 72 pixels/inch Resolution. I've tried playing with the sizes a lot, and I believe I read somewhere that the resolution actually matters for OSX to take the icon.

OS X Yosemite :: Windows Become Transparent Or Even Entirely Invisible

Dec 3, 2014

Since I have upgraded to Yosemite, I've been experiencing problems with the windows. Sometimes, they become transparent or even entirely invisible, I can see the borders when I pass over them with the mouse on mission control and I can perform actions as if they were fully functional, I just can't see them. How can I solve this? It happens with every window open at the moment, but it doesn't affect the ones that I open after.

The image shows how the window become sometimes, other times it's completely invisible.

OS X Yosemite :: Transparent PNG / GIF Files In Finder

Dec 9, 2014

I have been looking for ways to view my WHITE .png (white Logos) files in OSX or in Bridge... but have had no luck. 

I know this is possible I've had it before... it wasn't until I discovered that it was last a feature in TIGER.  So I'm not crazy! 

I can't fathom why Apple would remove this ability.  But since it is possible, there should be an plug in or an app or something out there that can bring this back. 

Seeing as it is possible in OSX, i figure my chances in finding a solution from Apple will be better than Adobe. 

Solutions so far are:

1. Cover Flow

   - Not useful in-fact it's difficult.

2. open file in preview -> copy image -> get info on file -> Paste into icon

   - 100's - 1000's of images for something the OS can do anyway not an option, also makes files larger.  

Sadly, once we figure this out there will only be one view we can see them in and that would be icon view... (better than cover flow) because columns doesn't let you change the colour of the BG.

OS X :: Making Boot Image Using External Hard Drive?

Jul 15, 2009

I want to know, is there any specific way possible I can set up my external hard drive so that when I plug it in, it mounts as an image file? So say I have a file "Image.DMG" on my desktop, I want to make it so that my external hard drive "becomes" Image.DMG, so when I plug it in, that's what it mounts as. I would like to do this because I want to make a boot image using my external hard drive.

Safari :: Drag An Image From A Page In It To The Finder And Have It Be Saved As An Actual Image Instead Of A Webloc?

Apr 16, 2012

Safari used to let me drag an image from a webpage to the finder and have the dragged file be saved as an actual image but now all that's saved is a webloc file.  I want the image saved, not a reference to the image's URL - do I now have to always use "save as" to save it? 

I can understand Safari creating a webloc file if I dragged the site icon from the location bar to the finder, but to make the default behavior for dragging things that are parts of a page (not the page itself) as webloc files seems like a HUGE step backwards for usability. 

Does anyone know if there's, say, a key to hold when dragging to avoid saving a webloc file or a defaults command or something to make Safari revert back to sane draging behavior?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Cannot Upload An Image Because The Image Or The Container Folder Does Not Have Permission

Apr 12, 2012

One software says I cannot upload an image because the image or the container folder does not have permission. Indeed there is one "unknown" in permissions, that I cannot get to a read write no matter how hard I try -- both on the folder, the desktop, and the file (this is all on my laptop)  I've done a repair permission.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Copy Image From Browser To PowerPoint, Get A Link Instead Of Image

May 25, 2012

When a user copies an image from a browser into PowerPoint 2011 he gets text of a link back to the image, not the image itself. But if he copies from a browser into Word he gets the image, and can then copy the image from Word to PowerPoint. Same results with both Firefox and Safari. Behavior is new so I assume it relates to recent software updates but user does not recall accepting any.

OS X :: Changing Icons On Folder - Background Not Transparent

Oct 8, 2007

I am trying to change the background on some Aliases and folders I created on my desktop. I downloaded some icons in .ico and .png format online, and I am able to use the .png format. I open up the .png file, ctrl-c it, then goto the Alias or Folder I want to change the icon on. I do a "Get Info", then I click on the icon at the top and do a ctrl-v. This changes the icon, but it puts a White background behind the icon. See the screenshot below to see what I am talking about. Screenshot of resulting icon on desktop. Site where I downloaded the icons:
