i have an image with a white background (its a png). Is there anyway in Paint shop Pro 9 to convert this white background to transparent?

Have you tried selecting the white area (say using the Magic Wand) and deleting it? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 7 '11 at 21:59

Within Paint Shop Pro 5 & 7 (don't have a version here to give exact instructions from - going from memory) you had to go into one of the menu's and 'Set Transparency', you would they select which colour from the palette to make transparent.

You might want to change the background to another colour if there are other white areas you don't wish to be transparent.

You might also have to change the image type to .jpg to do it...

Image > Palette > Set Transparency , then select the colour you want to be transparent.
