Annoying Black Background No Matter What I Do

Postby Michael Cohen on Tue Jul 28, 2015 12:43 pm

Every time I create a new image with callouts in Capture, the background ends up being black once I save the file. Doesn't matter what file format I save it as (I've tried bmp, jpeg, png), as soon as I select the image, which looks normal in Capture, in Flare the image has a black background.

Is there some profile setting that I'm missing that controls this? I'm completely lost in trying to correct this problem. Happens every time, regardless of whether I create the image from a screen capture or use a different capture tool and copy and paste into Capture.

I'm on a standard PC running Windows 7. I have to use Capture because the alternative would be to completely remake over a dozen complex images with callouts using another capture tool or Photoshop, which I don't have time to do.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

In Capture, open the image's File Properties window and check the Appearance tab, Background. Is the black being set there?

Also, given that you say that this is happening for all of your images, I'd check to see if a profile is being applied and whether that black background has been defined in that profile.You might want either to edit the profile or to detach the profile from individual images. (Fair warning that, if a profile is indeed being applied, there might be other settings besides the background that are affecting the image(s) and that you may not want to jettison.)
