I have bought a bunch of CD-ROMs of
permission-free graphics.  But when I import them into my PrintShop 21
Deluxe documents, the backgrounds around the images are white.  I want
to know how to make these backgrounds transparent so that the
background will match the background of my PrintShop project.
There is no answer at this time.

If you have access to Photoshop or a similar program you can convert
the graphic to a gif and select the white area to be transparent.

Oh, and you can also make the background transparent in Illustrator or InDesign.
