    Importing a Sketchbook Pro image into Artrage Studio Pro 3.55

    I'm new to ArtRage Studio Pro and cannot find a satisfactory inking routine of sketches in ArtRage. Sooooooo, I'm also new to Sketchbook Pro, but was able to get a nicely done inking of a sketch very quickly. I copied the new inked sketch into ArtRage Studio Pro so that I could color it. PROBLEM IS: THE BLACK AND WHITE IMPORTED INKED DRAWING IS OPAQUE, SO NO SUBLAYER COLOR SHOWS THROUGH. HOW DO I TRANSPARENTIZE sp? THE WHITE IN THE IMPORTED IMAGE?

    Set the layer to 'Multiply". That makes the white drop out. Having that layer on top will make it like an animation cell (as a way to explain) where the line is on an acetate overlay and all the color work is done behind or below that level. If you set that multiplied layer to less than 100 percent opacity, it will show through the line though. And I don't think that's what you're after. So just make your black on Multiply and you're ready to paint on layers below.

    Another method you could use:-

    Open your ink drawing up in Sketchbook
    From the Edit menu select Preferences and set the background to transparent

    From the File Menu choose 'Save a copy As' and select the .png filetype from the dropdown.
    Import the .png file into Artrage

    Here ya go The black is on the top layer and is the one that needs to be selected for the settings. In this illustration, the color is on the lower layer.

    Oh, and you may find that the Tips and Tricks forum is a very useful one for techniques and ideas, let alone help.
