Photosuite 9

Question

I am using Photosuite 9 part of the Easy Creator 9 package for photos. I scanned a photo as a jpeg file at 400dpi. I cut out the background and replaced it with a new background photo that is a jpeg. But when I bring it back up for further editing the original photo disappears. The only thing that is left is the new background that I inserted. . I originally saved it as a dmsp file. I running Windows XP with service pack 3. I never had a problem before. I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it, but I still have the same problem. Any ideas.

Could you describe in detail the steps you took, which tool did you use, etc?

I opened the picture that I was going to use. I clicked on the All tab and clicked on the Tools tab and selected Mask/Cutout by color. I selected the background that I wanted to cut out. I clicked Creat Cutout. I then selected Cookie-cut it out and clicked OK. The background was removed. I clicked on the Common tab and selected insert photos & cut outs. From there I selected a photo for the background. I slid it in place, right clicked on mouse and selected change order clicked backward. It looks great until I bring it up later for futher editing. I can see the picture in my picture folder but when I open it up in Photosuite just the background shows up. I have tried this before and had no problems.

I am sorry but I just don't quite understand what you are trying to do :unsure:

Basically I have a picture of a house. I want to delete the background (all the scenery behind the house) with another one. I saved the picture as a jpeg instead of a dmsp file. When I opened it up in Photosuite as a jpeg there isn't a problem, but with the dmsp file only the background showed. So I guess I will have to make most editing as a jpeg instead of a dmsp file. This stuff can be crazy sometimes. I always saved pictures as a dmsp file so I could go back and make adjustments if neccessary. Then when I was done I saved it as a jpeg or bmp file. Go figure.

Do you mean you want to take just a cutout of the "house" and paste it over top of some other picture?

Yes that is what I intended to do. Either cut the house out and put it over another picture or cut the background behind the house out and insert a picture behind it. It should work either way.

I have never tried it with the background but have always created a cutout using the Tracing Mask, saved the cutout to a file and then overlaid the cutout using Insert Photos & Cutouts.
