Nice Feature!!
« on: June 19, 2017, 05:27:41 PM »
You guys might have already covered this but it's the first time I've seen it.  So, am posting it here for those like me who don't know. 

Download the image below and open it in Affinity Photo.
On the menu, select Filters\Colors\Erase White Paper

Your image will be left with a perfect transparent background!  Apparently, it only works with white backgrounds but what an awesome way to remove the background.  I'm always amazed at how far they've come with some of these programs.

You're right, it is Erase and not Remove.  I fixed it.  I can blame it on this extreme heat - it muddles the brain!  :cancan:  I sure hope they put that in AD!!

It's going to be this way until at least Saturday. They are expecting tomorrow (Wednesday) to be the hottest day yet!  It's also a bad air day which means I don't do much moving around.  I have the a/c, the ceiling fan, and a fan sitting down on the floor in the family room where I have my computer.  I keep the rest of the place closed off.  If it gets too bad, I still have one more floor stand fan I can drag out

I'm sure glad I was able to get fresh foods delivered.  Had a delicious omelet for dinner.  Filled it with orange and green bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, shredded mixed cheese, and Louisiana hot links that I chopped up.    Fast and easy, and all fresh!  The only thing that is worrying me is that my car won't start when I need it.  It hasn't been touched in at least 2 weeks.   Sure am NOT going out the door to see!!

It really was delicious, Nicky!  I"m trying to fix food that is fast, yet nourishing.  I had a lot of stuff left over from yesterday so tonight, I made scrambled eggs with mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, black olives and cheese.   Spooned some salsa on top after it was cooked.  Was really good and used up a lot of little left-overs.  Took maybe 3 minutes to cook.    This heat wave is causing me to eat things that I wouldn't normally eat and I'm liking it!  We have about 3 more days of this heat, then it's supposed to cool down but tomorrow is supposed to be our hottest day yet.  If the heat doesn't kill me, I'll probably have a heart attack when I get my utility bill!!

You can do this by copying and pasting an image into the workspace too, without downloading. Very useful tip, thanks MaryLou.

Your Omelet sounds delicious and has given me an idea for a quick lunch today. I always add my toppings when the Omelet is almost set to retain the flavours.

Here's a healthy no flour, fat-free version of a quick Banana Omelet wrap. Mash up 1 Banana and mix with 1 beaten Egg. Place in a Pan with 1 tsp of oil added and gently fry until set. Sprinkle with a few drops of Lemon Juice, and a little Sweetner (or add chopped Nuts, Fruit, Honey, Cocoa Powder to the mix for example) then fold up and eat. Great for lunch boxes etc.

Sheryl, how does this remove the background if you copy and paste an image?   Maybe you meant copy the image I put there rather than downloading it?  I think most of us probably do it that way - or use the snipping tool to grab it.The important part of that image is how easily a white background was removed.  I'm thinking of the clipart I find that has white backgrounds.  Going to try this next time.   I do that 16 page newsletter each month and use a lot of free clipart and most of it has a white background.  Most times, it doesn't matter but when putting it on a background with color, yikes!  Definitely needs to be removed.

I can't try the banana recipe - don't have any. Forgot to put them on my shopping list along with strawberries!  Tonight, it's going to be a salad with left over mushrooms and whatever else I can find to put in it.  It's 110 right now and definitely not cooking weather!  I really wanted some porkchops today but forgot to take them out of the freezer.  Will have them tomorrow but cooked in the slow cooker, then served over rice.  It only takes 10 min to cook the rice.  I might cook it in the morning when it's in the 90's, then reheat in microwave in the evening.  Sure be glad when this is over with!!
