Help ! I have several jpeg images.... when I print the image onto colored paper...only the image appears and the white background is transparent (it ends up as the paper color) yet when I place the jpeg image over another image...it does not print as transparent but prints the white background...again this is a jpeg image ! I thought they did not have transparent backgrounds..yet why does it print alone as a transparent background?? Confused

Does your printer have white ink? Unless you have a printer with white ink than a white background will be paper color.

I do not have white ink…but when I print the image on brown paper…the background is browwn….and only the focus part of the image…let’s say a pumpkin prints……doesn’t that mean that the background of the jpeg must be transparent?? And I didn’t think that was possible…….yet if I take same image and place it on top of a different background image…I get the white background showing over the different background…..does that make sense to you??

Thanks for your advice….

John

»when I place the jpeg image over another image«

What exactly are you describing here? 

 

What are the print settings and, as Randy_Hufford already asked, does your printer actually have a white color to print with?

I have a jpeg image of a pumpkin on a white background (it is not a picture but is a drawing) When I print it on brown paper…just the pumpkin shows through…the white background does not. Yet…when I place the image over a brown background in photoshop…the white background show on top of the brown background and prints as such….does that make sense?? Hope I am explaining it better….seems like it is a transparency in a JPEG??

Are you saying that when you place the image onto another image with a brown background the white of the original does print as white on the brown paper even though your printer cannot print white? 

 

Do you understand the concept of subtractive color mixing and how that relates to printers in general?
