Alpha Channels

I seem to be having problems understanding the alpha channel, and what it is useful for. I've looked at the user manual and so far as I can see I don't really need it in my rather amateur of GC, which in any case is mainly with jpg files. So I'd like to be able to turn if off. But how? The nearest I...

Re: Browser thumbnails not refreshing

I cannot reproduce the phenomenon on my iMac. The thumbnails disappear when I choose the trash icon and rotate when I choose the right or left rotate icon.
Mojave and GC both up to date.

Re: Analyze button requires GC 10.13 - can't find this version.

I assume this refers to OSX 10.13, not GC 10.13?

Re: [Solved] Rectangle selection problem

Thank you. My old keyboard just has "esc" on that key.

But now I know, the significance of the symbol is clear!

Re: [Solved] Rectangle selection problem

Sorry! But the answer was quite hard for me to find in the Help manual. There are four "bars" at the bottom of the tool palette. The one at the very bottom enables you to select one of quite a number of aspect ratios for the square marquee selection tool; somehow I had inadvertently change it from "...

[Solved] Rectangle selection problem

Since yesterday, when I make a selection with the rectangular selection tool the selection comes with a 2:1 width to height constraint. If I hold down the shift key it changes to 1:2. It never used to do this - I was able to make a selection of any shape I wanted. The elliptical alternative is uncon...

[Solved] Re: GC 10.5.2 Beta Build 2902

1. I downloaded and opened this and it complained that MacOS had deleted or mislaid the Preferences. It offered to rebuild them, and on acceptance appears to have done so correctly. But is this normal? And are there some old preference files left around in my Library? 2. The download appears to be 2...

Re: What would you want in a GraphicConverter Lite?

IMHO the whole concept of a “Graphic Converter Lite” is fundamentally unsound. Firstly, how are the “Expert” features to be turned off? By software switches? This will serve only to make the whole package bigger and more complicated, with attendant risk of introducing bugs. Or by excising them, whic...

Re: New (and unwanted) dialog

Thanks - sorted!

I have some sympathy with JamesInSanDego's point. I suspect that I use about 1% of Graphic Converter's capabilities!
