 Transparency Options

 

 

 Opaque - Disables transparency for generated thumbnails of the selected file type, discarding any alpha information and making them fully opaque. You will not be able to see through transparent areas of thumbnails. If the image is not premultiplied any color information in the usually transparent areas will be visible. Opaque thumbnails are rendered over a black background.

 

 Transparent - Enables transparency for generated thumbnails of the selected file type. You will be able to see through transparent or partially transparent areas of thumbnails. This can make thumbnails on the desktop look cleaner for example.

 Checkerboard Light - (default for transparency enabled file types) - Overlays generated thumbnails on a light checkerboard background so you can clearly see detail not easily seen through transparency alone. This option can be very useful for graphic designers, video game artists etc. MysticThumbs tries to keep the checkerboard pattern to around a 8x8 pixel grid.

 Checkerboard Dark - Overlays generated thumbnails on a dark checkerboard background so you can clearly see detail not easily seen through transparency alone. This option can be very useful for graphic designers, video game artists etc. MysticThumbs tries to keep the checkerboard pattern to around a 8x8 pixel grid. The dark checkerboard is useful for images that consist of a white matte layer over transparency.
