I know there is already such question but it didn't helped me. I have a lot of image files, where I want to change purple RGB(255, 0, 255) to transparent (it is png). Is there any app which could do it quickly? I use Linux, but I am able to use Windows tool.
Like most questions which involve batch transformations of raster image files, the answer is to be found in the netpbm toolkit. In this case, if your png images don't already have an alpha channel, the simplest solution will be to convert from png to pnm and back again; on the way back, you can specify a transparent colour:
If your png images do already have an alpha channel (or a different transparent background colour), you'll need to extract the existing alpha channel and then combine it with a new alpha channel consisting of the "purple" pixels. See the
If the transformation is not available in the netpbm toolkit, it's usually pretty easy to do it with a shell script or a python program; just convert the images to plain format, which is pretty easy to work with.
