Loving my new yellow inky phat.
I’m currently re-writing a good chunk of the weather script to take info from the BBC instead of Yahoo. So far, so good. It’s mostly working, has a lot more options for info and is broadly working, with the exception of a few tweaks.
My main problem is self inflicted but if I can solve it, should help others too.
I’m trying to make new icons (as here https://learn.pimoroni.com/tutorial/sandyj/getting-started-with-inky-phat)for the weather but am having problems creating them correctly so they render on the inky phat. According to http://docs.pimoroni.com/inkyphat/#paste-an-image I should be able to create a PNG with transparency which will work the same as the ones in the example script/resources.
The problem is that whilst the stock image works as expected, the one I’m creating in GIMP 2.10.8 looks fine in Windows but ends up like this:
For reference, here are the stock image/result and my image/result. As you can see there’s nothing wrong with the script as the stock image works.
Please note the second image may be invisible as it’s white on transparent!
It’ll only let me post one image so I’ll have to reply with the rest.
Please point me in the right direction!
