  1. Transparency lost in Image Trace

    Transparency of .png images is lost if using the image trace option. So my already transparent picture now has a white background if I use image trace, unless I use sketched art which does not provide the look I want. All the options should be transparent, especially if the original file is already.

    The latest Beta 28.7.0.45 finally offers transparency support.


    Transparent background is no longer traced as white in color presets '3 Colors', '6 Colors', '16 Colors', 'Low Fidelity Photo' and 'High Fidelity Photo'.

    Not (yet hopefully) supported for Black & White based presets.


    Partial transparency is not supported and will lead to incorrect colors for these regions. Overlapping path method will also result in incorrect object appearance.


    Note also this build introduced Logical Grouping of paths in output when expanded — to hopefully allow easier editing,


    Please try the build and provide feedback.
