    Hi, How the heck do I get Aperture to see my Watermark files with transparent backgrounds? When I use the embedded watermarking in export, it makes the background white.

    What can I do?

    Should I just abandon Aperture, and use another application to watermark my photos? If so, what application should I use?

    Thanks!

    What exact image format are you saving the watermark images as. If it's multilayered I'd try flattening it to a single layer. Aperture can definitely do this but I've seen others report issues with some images.

    I've been using PS, I save it as a tiff, both layered and flattened. neither way helps...

    OK what colour depth? I'm not on a Mac right now so I can't try playing around to find what works. Perhaps try the Aperture discussion on the Apple support site?
