Is there a way to pass a PNG image with the pimage.set command?

I need to copy a PNG image to a JPG image. Using the command:
pimg.set (x, y, img);
I paste the image not as a PNG but as a JPG, thus inserting the background.
Any advice to solve this problem?

Hi @michele_rinaldi,

based on your code snippet you’re copying a PImage to another PImage, even if you are considering it as a png or jpg. Please describe in more detail what you want to achieve.

Is the png format preserved internally or does processing convert to jpg silently?

when I load the image I specify that it is a PNG, but in the process of copying to another image, Processing automatically makes it a JPG

Hi,
What do you mean by …

As state before … you have two PImage objects not a png and a jpg object !?
To help, please show your code (or parts of it which demonstrates what you are doing), tell us what happens and your expectations what should be happen …

Cheers
