Creating Alpha PNG Images in Paint Shop Pro 7

  1. Create an image
  2. Create a mask (this is the alpha layer)
  3. Save the mask to an alpha channel
  4. IMPORTANT: Delete the current mask, and don’t merge it into the current layer. If you don’t do this, the resulting image will be double-alphad.
  5. Save the image to a PNG file.
