Hello,

as I am trying to get more familar with the JAI API, I am wondering if there is a possibility to add transparency to a TIFF image. I am considering the API itself as rather unsatisfying, therefore the only solution to my problem is posting this topic right here.

Greetings from Germany ;-)

You can do this but not in place. That is to say you would need to load the image, perform processing to add the transparency. and then write the result out as a separate TIFF file.

It's always nice to start a conversation on a positive note.
