Suggestion: replace "transparency" to "opacity"

In the sentence "The color’s fourth component, alpha, controls its transparency"

Since the alpha value of 0.0 makes fully transparent color and 1.0 makes fully opaque color, saying that alpha value controls opacity is technically more correct.

The Wikipedia article "RGBA color model" says on the topic the following:

> Alpha indicates how opaque each pixel is
