    Transparent Text ?

    I have a background picture that tiles to fill in the space. I would like to create some graphically enriched text to place over the background. I have PaintShop Pro. I create my text on a transparent background and then save it as a gif. But a white background shows up behind the text. I then went to FrontPage 2002 and use the VML word art to create some text directly over the background. The problem there is the text looks bad when saved and displayed in a browser. Any suggestions on how to create colored text with a transparent background would be appreciated. I also have Corel Draw Essentials at my disposal. Would be willing to purchase another graphics program if necessary but would obiviously rather not.
    Thanks for the help.
    Thanks
    Trent

    trent16 I had the same problem when i first started using graphics programs. Try looking for an export preview option when exporting your graphic with a
    transparent background. I know that you set the background to transparent but for some reason your export options are not set to transparent. don't try and save the file as .gif try an export it as a .gif.

    I think that's what your problem is.

    I hope this helps.
