Not sure if this is the place but I ws wondering if anyone can anwser my Paint Sho Pro question? The following are my steps: 1. Create a raster window with the back ground color of Black. (Both the screen window and the preview window show as black) 2. Draw White Text in the Window. 3. After the Text is Draw PSP selects the text; so I just cut the Text. 4. Past the Text as a New Image. (Problem the screen shows as black with white text; but the preview window shows as a white screen with white text). So the problem is if I save the file it will just be a white rectangle. Why is this happening? Is there a way to fix the problem without a lot of work?

Chances are PSP is saving the pic as white text on a transparent background by mistake. Sometimes it likes to default a transparent background to white, giving you a whole lot of nothing. PSP8 blows. PSP7 is far more reliable.

Well, the preview window shows white because when you paste this text as a new image, it''s created on a transparent background. The preview window likes to display transparent parts as white.

As for the saving, mind telling us what format you''re saving it as? In PSP8 you''ll be better off going to File -> Export and selecting one of the optimizers. From within there you can usually select a background color, and what color to blend partially transparent pixels with.
