Silhouette Studio allows transparent PNG files to be exported which means you can design and create in Studio and export a Silhouette file with a transparent background.

In order to export a transparent PNG file from Silhouette Studio you'll need Silhouette Studio Business Edition which is a one time paid upgrade. 

Create your design in Silhouette Studio.

When you're ready to export go to File > Save As or select the design and go to File > Save Selection.

  1. HI! I'm trying to do this and am using Windows in which the Save As just allows a normal save, it does not have the two extra pop-ups. Can you please advise as to how Windows users can do this? Please?

    1. Hi there, you need Business Edition for saving as a PNG. You would want the Designer> Business specific upgrade if you decide to. You can find it here: http://shrsl.com/1kcs0
