New option to initialize a layer mask from another layer (and possibly bypassing TRC conversion)
- GIMP version: 2.10.24 (revision 3)
- Package: Chocolatey install
- Operating System: Windows 10 Pro
After exporting an image with an alpha channel, the resulting file has an alpha channel with much higher contrast than made in GIMP. Description of the bug
Tested with .dds, .png, .tga and .webp, the results are the same across the board.
Is the bug reproducible? Always
- Create an image with a non-binary alpha channel
- Export image to a format supporting partial transparency
- Examine the exported image in any other software, such as XNView.
Expected result: Visual and exported results match
Actual result: Visual and exported results are distinct
This issue has occurred since the initial release of GIMP 2.10. I initially downloaded and installed directly from the website. I've reformatted my computer entirely since then. The only way I've been able to successfully use GIMP 2.10 since its release has been by exporting the image and alpha as distinct images and merging them with ImageMagick.
