If you’re using Pixelmator Pro only Method 1 will apply and menu items will be in different places. Hope this helps. Let me know if you get stuck and post an image if you do.
It’ll be easier to show you either of those methods with your own image. Fri Aug 24, pm Hey st3f, thanks for reply. Think of a Jackson Pollack with 10, pixels of black and the other , pixels are different colors. How would you select just the 10, black pixels if you want to turn them all transparent? So, not sure how to even attempt method 1 or 2. I’m sure I’m just not getting something. I have too many black pixels that are too spread out to select them all individually.
It would be cool to just be able to manipulate the underlying HEX code. Fri Aug 24, pm Jackson Pollock? Method 2. Definitely method 2. It’s not as complex as it sounds. Trust me. This might convince you. Jackson Pollock: Jackson Pollock with transparent black and a hideous vibrant green showing through from below. It may not be exactly what you wanted but here’s hoping it’s close enough.
Might be overkill to learn just to edit one image, though. Fri Aug 24, pm Hey st3f, Got method 2 to work. Also got the layers reversed. Sat Aug 25, am Yay. Glad to hear it worked. I refused to believe that such a great app as Pixelmator does not have an easy way to do this, so I did poke around a little bit and found out that it is actually very easy to do in this version.
So I thought I might just share this, for those who would like to accomplish the same: In Pixelmator Pro you can simply use “select color range” for this.
You can reach it via the vertical tool bar on the right hand side of the applications window. The 5th tool from the top is the icon for “quick selection”. You can click on the little arrow in the lower right corner of the icon to switch from “quick selector” to “color selector”.
From there click the first button in the lower section of the settings pane to get to the “select color range” function. You should then see a screen similar to the first picture below. You can choose the color picker or the well to choose the color you want. If you look at the image in my example, you will see that the complexity is not very far from a Jackson Pollock: I was after the sparkling “” to use it in another image, so I wanted to simply “drop” everything that is black. However, in my case the color range selection revealed, that the “black” in the source image was by far not all black.
Most areas were actually RGB 0,1,2, but the closer towards the “”, the more other variations of “black” come into play. At this level I did not have to sacrifice too much of the fine grained sparkle which is why I did want this image for in the first place , but did not have to live with too much dark areas in the “”. Of course I could have taken the “purist approach” and go color-by-color starting from the darker tones, but I decided that it won’t be worth the effort.
I think I will start with this outcome, which I can now treat as an object or layer, more precisely and play around with the color adjustment to brighten it up until I am satisfied with the end result.
Hope this helps someone out there. Have fun!
