Hi,

I have an .eps vector file with glowing sparks,

for some reason, which I have encountered many times before, the glowing vectors always have

black background, so you can't really save them as a transparent PNG image.

I was wondering if you can tell me if I'm doing something wrong, or how,

if it's even possible, can I export it as a transparent image?

An example of my vector file:

transparent_glow.jpeg

Thanks.

EPS does not support transparency... an ai EPS is a combination of an EPS and AI file (if that makes sense) so you would need to modify the objects first in AI and save as an AI file.

Put a black background behind them and save that as any raster format, high resolution.

Then open in Photoshop and use it as an alpha channel:

1. Load the channel as a mask

2. Fill with white on a transparent layer

3. Export as PNG

Hi,

Is there any way for a colorful glow?

Unfortunately, in the case of color, there is always some black background left.

Im trying get full transparent png from this picture.

After small test :

no blending:

blending screen:

Is it even possible to get a transparent png file to be similar to that of a blending screen?

PNG images can't have the blending mode in them, but glow is always a transparent interaction between foreground object and a specific background. So what works on one background probably doesn't on a different one.

So there is no chance of getting the same effect using a transparent png 😞 There is still mixing.

THose lighting effects are usually achieved by interaction using the screen blend mode. It's not possible in a PNG.
