Based on Metalizer (Kochubey,) the real power of Alpha Metalique is the ability to "metalize" an image, with or without a color tint, while preserving the transparency of the original image. Create seamless metallic overlays with transparency for fabric textures, or isolated designs for jewelry or metal work. In cases where replacing/adding a background is desirable, there are several options for a background fill. When using these options, the background color is determinded by the Color Tint. Please note: Using patterns consisting of black and transparency produce inconsistent results as black does not "metalize." However, a black pattern can look stunning with a background applied.
