[color=black]You need paint shop pro (you can get a free fully working trial from their website) and use the guide on the relic web site, it worked for me and I was having the same problem.[/color] [color=black]Hears the link to relic [color=orange]http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=29879[/color][/color] [color=black]Hears the link to the paint shop pro trial download http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=Corel3/Trials/DownloadContainer[/color] [color=black]Hope it helps (let me know if it douse) good luck [/color]

Man, get GIMP 1.3 (not the newest version!). It is way easier to use than anything else I have tried. All you do is use the magic wand to select what you want, create a new image, make the empty one transparent and paste your image on to it. Then just merge layers, resize, save as compressed and put it in. So easy, I can easily make a badge in about 10 seconds.
