Import of transparent PNG or psd layers.
Import of transparent PNG or psd layers. Would be great to use these as imports or even linked assets.
Also simple annimations such as slide in etc.
You can already import PNG images with transparency (alpha channel) by dragging & dropping the PNG files onto your Adobe XD window, or by choosing File > Import. You can also bring individual Photoshop layers into XD by copying them in Photoshop and pasting in XD. Are you having trouble getting this to work? If so, please let us know the details.
Linking to external objects is not yet possible — if you add an image to your XD project, it will always be embedded in your .xd file. If you’d like to be able to keep image assets separate (linked), please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109-linked-objects
Simple slide-in animations are already possible — for details check out this tutorial: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/how-to/ui-prototyping.html. For more complex animations, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869229-animation-support-microinteractions
I’m closing this feature request since it is a combination of things that should already be possible and things that have already been suggested individually. In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. If I’ve misunderstood anything, please reply back here or file a new separate bug or suggestion. Thanks for your feedback!

Hi, I have an issue when I am trying to bring a PNG image to XD. Either import or dragging it opens with the background color that I masked in photoshop. why?
Thanks for your help

When I try to add a PNG to adobe XD, it comes out with BLACK background? why?
I am trying to do this as well, and I am getting a white background.
I think he means directly copying pasting an object/layer from Photoshop while preserving transparency (which is currently not possible, the copied object's transparency becomes white). I know it's possible to save PNG with transparency and THEN bring it to Xd. However copying directly from Photoshop with transparency would greatly improve workflow as we do this quite often.
