Can a picture be edited in the animation tab to a unique shape rather than the square?


#1

My students want to use an existing image of a glacier as a sprite - they cannot figure out how to edit the image under the animation tab so that it’s just the glacier, not the glacier with a transparent background. Having it be a square affects their game play with scoring, etc.

Is this possible? Thanks in advance!

Miss Clarke,

Unfortunately no, but you can remove the background with a number of free tools online. If you have Mac’s you can open the image in Preview and use the Toolbox > Instant Alpha wand to remove the background.

As an alternative you could use the set collider to change what shape the sprite is if that is affecting their games.

Hope that helps!
