Skinman problem with images

#1 Post by CI Dan Saxton » Sat Nov 03, 2018 11:03 am

I appreciate this isn't a Skinman support forum, but I'm hoping someone might be able to help.

I created a gauge in Skinman which has 5 imported images (.png)...

1x Background of gauge
4x Screw heads

After saving, closing and restarting Skinman, when I load my gauge, the screw head images are much darker than before, yet if I delete it and reimport, it's fine again.
Hopefully, I explained that ok?

any help appreciated.

In Skinman we can import images,
but i rather use them as examples and references to rebuild them with Skinman tools
then before exporting i remove them and save again

the best pratcice, if still wanting to use external pictures, is to superimpose while creating in AM
as the transparency is best handled in AM and in the opposite, Skinman as an old tool not updated, don't handle them really well
we have to use it for its initial features, using embedded shapes tools
