How to Add Transparent(.png) icons/images to Nextion display


I was trying to add some transparent images to display and it is coming with white border, i have cropped the image in photoshop and removed all the white/bank areas of image and saved as .png

Thanks &Regards,


Only the Nextion Intelligent series and the TJC X3, X5 series support transparency. For all the other models you have to use cropped pictures or identical background colors to make it look transparent.

Kind regards,

HI Max,

is there any alternative display other than nextion which support transparent images ?

Yes. The newer Nextion models of the so-called Intelligent series can handle transparency. Unfortunately, up to now, they only exist in 7” and 10”.
