Currently the png export in the Print Ready Admin export function exports the file with a white background, which requires
the file to be edited before printing, and thus not print ready.
It would be tremendously helpful if this png export was in fact transparent.
Thank you for looking into implementing this. We've just been doing some testing and the png export now removes all white from the files.
So if the artwork is just some white text on a transparent background - we are seeing empty files come through.
We also noticed that in some occasions lighter colours that aren't true white (#fffff) are also being removed. See example file attached.
It would be brilliant if there was a solution that didn't remove any white in the original transparent file uploaded by the customer, but that just the white background that is added on export isn't added to .png files.
Yes I also notice it, in the new code it replaces all #ffffff with transparency. So I am going to remove this approach again. The plugin is that the server converts the pdf to png, and the pdf pages are having a white background. I need to find a solution how to remove that white background from the pdf without effecting white parts of the embedded images.
A response would be great considering this is holding up my project.. PLEASE!
IS THIS SOLVED????
I am planning that customer print ready orders go direct from my site to my DTG dropship company and can not have this problem!
Transparency is possible in PDF and its likely a viewer problem. It may be that we need to set things differently in the output file IF there is actually a problem. A very precursory search into background transparency turned up and article about PDF transparency
It should work now. Please create a print-ready PNG file.
