💡Feature Idea: Set transparent color to shapes and pictures

edited September 2021 in Feature Ideas

I have to organize a workshop and during this workshop, my intention is to play a game with the team- they to create a puzzle from pieces already created. I have put these pieces of the puzzle in Mural, but because of the transparency of the pieces the final image is not looking good. Could you please develop Mural in the way to set transparent color to any picture or shape? Also, maybe you can find a way to have more shapes (like clouds for example) available. This is a really important feature that will support us as facilitators to organize great ice-breaks and games.

Thank you

    I see your point! I've also request more shapes before in this forum (https://community.mural.co/discussion/comment/903) and I've used rectangle shaped puzzle pieces so far to workaround transparency.

    I think if you had your puzzle pieces as separate PNG files on your computer and uploaded to MURAL, you could use the transparency in them, wouldn't you?

    Maybe I did not understand that point regarding the transparency correctly and you could try to explain it to me again?

  • Dear Manuel, Thank you for your answer. I did not try this solution with puzzle pieces as separate PNG files. I will try and let you know the result. Thank you!

    You're welcome! Would be happy to know if it helped :-)

  • Tangentially related, we had a pretty large discussion around building a tangram puzzle in MURAL a bit ago. I think you might find some useful tidbits there.
