I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to add transparency to pictures in Paintshop Pro. I mean like how to make an area of white background transparent so that when it is on a website the previously white area is now the background color. Thanks.
Well if it is the same as PS then you would delete the white space so it appears to be empty then save as a gif / png for firefox users. No promises never even used it

Which version of PSP do you use, apparently it varies a little from version to version. PSP 5 is very different. Here are a few Links...
[quote=Grafx-Design.Com]Set the current background color to the color you want to become transparent. You can set the current background color by clicking on the background color swatch and choosing a color from the color picker. Alternately you can select the Dropper tool and right-click on the image on the color you want to set the background color to. This is a great way to select the color you'd like to be transparent.
Choose Colors, Set Palette Transparency.
In the dialog box that appears, select Set the Transparency Value to the Current Background Color and click OK.
I'm not sure if this program uses layers or not, but I take the cheep and dirty way. I make a copy of the original image (so if/when I f-up I have something to fall back on) then play around with the copy(s). you can use various methods for removing areas (majic wand, eraser, etc)

Magic Wand!? Where is that? :confused:
This is only the SECOND best image manipulation program availible. They learn everything from Photoshop. Make it better, and then change the names of some things.
