    I know this question is asked a lot, but there is no tip on it. How can I make a bitmap transparent. (In paint or with code will do, I am getting paintshop pro tonight so could that do it)

    I don't get you, do mean you want the background of the picture be transperant or what?

    because for a start there are only 2 types of pictures that support transparency and bitmap isn't one of them
    1 is gif and I can't remember the name of the other one.

    I do mean the background of the image. i can always change it to a gif, that isn't any problem at all.

    I think this is the one dmuir is refering to:
    http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb...=1&blnFrm=true

    but could be a different one

    and this one does the same but with the white pixels (can be changed)

    goto www.planet-source-code.com and lookup TransBitBlt

    This will copy a bitmap and treat any black pixels as transparent.

    good luck,
