I have set the skin image as the background of my application. Then I have an svg image drawn on top of the background.
I would like to make the svg image kind of semi transparent so that the skin image would be visible through the svg image.
Is transparency something constructed inside an svg image? I guess not. Isn't it something that can be defined when the image is actually drawn on the screen?
How does alpha blending work in practice? I have tried to find documentation and reference implementations with not the best success.
