 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 in most files.

 

When in Opaque mode, the adjustable canvas color is shown.

 Double click to select a canvas color that will be displayed behind any transparent areas not explicit in images without a background, such as rendered postscript / PDF files.

 You can save favorite canvas colors in the selector palette "Custom colors".

 

 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.
