Can I drag and drop a png from Photoshop to JIM WITH transparency?

In the earlier version I was unable to drag and drop an open png file with a transparent background into JIM without a white box. Does anyone know if this is possible in version 5?


Thanks!

Actually, I need to clarify my question:


I know I can drag and drop a transparent png file from the Finder window into JIM, but what I would like to do for a more expedient experience is drag and drop (or copy paste, for that matter) from within an open Photoshop file into JIM.


When I do that, I get an opaque white box in spite of it coming from a transparent layer.


Thanks!

Hi Todd!!


So long since we've have talked (at least it was for me ;) ), we haven't been able to do that yet. The transparency is not a default information in the Clipboard so we would need to create an special integration with Photoshop, be able to read their format, and then turn it into our format. That's why some applications (like powerpoint for instance) have that tool that lets you turn a color in your image as transparent. We are still thinking about what's best in Prototyper, if reading the Photoshop format or having that tool. The good thing about having a tool like that is that Firefox and many other browsers have the same issue with transparency.
