    Could someone please tell me if it's possible to create tranparent gifs in Paint Shop Pro 7.0 and, if so, explain how I would go about doing it? Thanks in advance.

    click on Colors on the menu an then Set Palette Transparency. Then if the Decrease Color Depth - 256 Colors box appears (meaning you are working with a bmp or jpg etc that is greater than 256 colors) leave it selected on Optimized Median Cut (gives me the best results) and click OK. The the Set Transparency box appears...choose either the Set the Transparency value to the current background color (which is the one you have choosen off the the right side of screen or you can set it to your own value. Make sure that the color choosen matches the current background color of your gif. The only problem I have found with this is that I usually use white as the background and this version seems to give me a white outline around the text. Version 5.0 did not seem to do that to me. My signature below was created with PSP 7.0 and MSPaint. Hope that helps....
