Hi Discourse community,
I uploaded a .png with a transparent overlay over a circle (to give a texture patter to the circle). But when uploaded, it made the circle darker (333333 to 0b0b0b). The circle should remain 333333 gray, with a transparent texture pattern over it. I’d attach an image but i’m a new user, so discourse won’t allow it yet.
I have tested the .png on different browsers, and it displays properly. I also uploaded it onto a genesis framework wordpress site, and it displays properly without alteration.
The stranger part of this is that when i upload other graphical assets that have transparent overlays, they uploaded perfectly fine. (these were larger than 400x400 but not sure if that mattered). So this narrows the problem to my specific 144x144 graphic designed for the discourse apple icon slot.
I use Illustrator, and I use the same save for web choices: png-24, transparency, type-optimized
Is there a optimization process that Discourse performs when it detects a transparent layer over a design?
