Downloading embellishments
I have downloaded an embellishment but when I insert it, it is already on a coloured background. Is there anyway I can just have the picture on top of the background I already have. I guess so it's just transparent on my background.

You need to extract it from the background that its on. Then save it as a png file, then copy and paste it to the background you want. If you need help to extract it, let me know.

What software are you using, kmf80? Sometimes regular .png files do not maintain their transparency in Microsoft Digital Image, in which case you will have to do as mattmom says, use another software to extract the embellishment in another software and save as a .png file. You can do that in the free software Paint.Net, if you do not have any other software. You can get that here: Hope this helps...Maggie

I can't use the embellishment on a scrapbook page without showing the white background. How do I extract the background from the embellishment? I am using PE 9 for Mac and My Memories. I could not get it to work in either program.
