Is it possible to export a *.png with RGBA8 in Photoshop?
Doing some design for 3D and developers need PNGs with RGBA8 for transparency. I am not even sure if this is possible with png. When I look at channels I see no alpha channel but there is alpha on the png, which is very confusing.
My flow is usually through generator, so I name layers fileName.png32 so it does full alpha but they turn out wrong and I have to open them and resave and that fixes it somehow (though I still cannot see alpha channel).
edit: more details. Here are the actual error I get from the program trying to import the PNG.
MakeImageCompatible: Converting Image 'item url here' from TEXFMT_BGR8 to TEXFMT_BGRA8
so its saying somehow it cannot read the alpha channel from what I gather.
Is it possible to export RGBA PNG from Photoshop? Very much so!
As Scott said, there's no separate â€œalphaâ€ channel visible in â€œChannelsâ€ panel, but the alpha channel is there anyway (just not â€œshownâ€ in the panel), as long as the image doesn't have the â€œBackgroundâ€ layer. Anyway this alpha channel is used when PNG files are saved. If you need some more control over your PNG files saved by Photoshop, I recommend you to use the â€œSave for Webâ€.
