Hi. I apologise if this has been asked before.
I have a jpg background to my pages (done through: Format->Page->Background->Graphic).
I want to be able to include pictures in the document but with an alpha channel.
*I have a background of a green grass texture and want to insert a picture of a soccer ball.
*The image of the soccer ball is simply the round ball with a transparency background. (png with alpha channel trans)
*What I want when I insert the picture is for the grass page background to show around the ball. However, instead of keeping the transparency it places it in my document with a white background to the ball.
*So now, instead of a round ball on the green grass page background, I have a ball inside a white square on the grass background.
Does libreoffice not support transparency in inserted images or am I missing an important step?
EDIT: Just using: INSERT->IMAGE->FROM FILE works perfectly provided there is an alpha channel transparency in the png image. Did not try other formats.
