I most love taking pictures of people. Weddings, portraits, graduation photos, balls... I am always in search of backlight, but I enjoy various types of lighting and mostly like to use shorter lenses. I love my Nikon, my guitar, and a kebab. You’ll find my photography on my website or on Facebook.

  1. Creating transparent background I get it. But once we have transparent background, how to fill that part of image with a solid fill colour or anything else? That’s part I’m struggling with. I’m on Zoner Studio 15 pro. I know in above article you’ve mentioned doing it with layers, but I don’t see that option in my version.
