I hate having to edit images with a transparent background to a solid white background just so that it works properly on HubPages.
This obviously has to do with the fact that PNG images are converted to JPEG, which does not support transparency. There are 2 solutions:
- Turn all transparency to solid white automatically
- Stop converting PNG to JPG if it contains transparency
Should look like:
Yes, this bugs me too! Have had this numerous times.
This annoyed me too when I started writing my first hubs. Thanks for reminding me about the problem; I'll put together a fix for it. That fix will be your first suggestion - convert transparency to white instead of black - because leaving images as PNGs is problematic for several reasons. I hope to have this done by the weekend: it's not a very large project.
However, I don't see any good way to make the solution "retroactive": if you have any existing images they will be stuck as black unless you re-import them.
This happens to me when I upload a .png image to Hubpages.
I would say that the Hubpage format is pretty simple layout wise and could do with a few upgrades maybe - including what would appear to be quite simple adjustments like the transparent pics ?
This should be taken care of now: I was able to import a PNG with transparency, and the white background was preserved. Try it out, and let me know if you have any further problems.
