All computer images have square corners. This can be limiting in graphic design if you want to create a rounded image, because a large portion of the image would consist of unused space. Transparent images resolve this issue; although the image remains rectangular, the background becomes invisible. Create a new image in Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9 and give it a transparent background to create a transparent image.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Launch Paint Shop Pro 9, click "File" in the upper-left corner of the screen, then click "New."

  2. 2

    Enter the desired dimensions of the image in pixels, inches, centimetres or millimetres using the "Width," "Height" and "Units" fields at the top of the window.

  3. 3

    Click the "Color Depth" drop-down menu and select the number of colours that you want the image to contain.

  4. 4

    Click the "Transparent" check box.

  5. 5

    Click "OK" to create the image.
