MVP 2021 Flex727 Posted January 9, 2022 MVP 2021 Report Share Posted January 9, 2022 I often see posts on here from people struggling with using the VisiLogic Image Library. Sometimes the images are close but not exactly what you need, or the wrong color, or something else minor. It's difficult to edit them directly due to the watermark or image format. What I do is place the image on a blank HMI screen, taking care that the image is sized exactly the way I want it, then take screenshot. That screenshot can be pasted into Paint, or your favorite graphics program, and then cropped and edited as needed. No watermark and it can be saved as .bmp for further use in VisiLogic. Over the years I've built a nice library of my own that has the images the way I want them. Be sure you do not have the HMI screen "zoomed" in VisiLogic before taking the screenshot. One thing I've always liked about working with VisiLogic is the pixel-perfect representation on my computer screen. Also, VisiLogic seems to re-size an image with better fidelity than most graphics programs. Not sure how they do that. This technique can also be used to combine text and graphics so that the text over graphics has a font that perfectly matches other text on the PLC screen. And, finally, remember that if you are going to use any image in "Transparent" mode, that the transparency is controlled by the single pixel in the top left corner of the image. Make sure that pixel color is unique to everything except the background. I usually use pink so that it stands out to me while editing (the pink will disappear on the PLC HMI screen). 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
