Transparent background -- file import problem

Hi all

I'm trying to export an image with a transparent background from Illustrator to Corel Painter, but when I open it in Corel Painter it either comes with a white background or it doesn't even open. I have tried saving it in many formats, PNG included (that's when it says the file cannot be opened). Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance!  

  • Hi,
    Try "Exporting" from Illustrator and save as a TIFF. Then, in Painter, open a new document and use File > Place to import the Illustrator image. That way you should have your image with transparency and can simply move the layer to wherever you want it.
