Alpha transparency scales

Alpha-transparency scales are not tremendously useful, but can be a convenient way to visually down-weight less important observations. scale_alpha is an alias for scale_alpha_continuous since that is the most common use of alpha, and it saves a bit of typing.

Usage
scale_alpha(..., range = c(0.1, 1))

scale_alpha_continuous(..., range = c(0.1, 1))

scale_alpha_discrete(...)

scale_alpha_ordinal(..., range = c(0.1, 1))

Arguments
...

Other arguments passed on to continuous_scale() or discrete_scale() as appropriate, to control name, limits, breaks, labels and so forth.

range

Output range of alpha values. Must lie between 0 and 1.
