PSP is now owned by Corel. It's more expensive now also. http://www.corel.com

They don't support older versions of PSP from the Jasc days, so beware of buying it at a discounted on eBay or anywhere else if it's version 8 or older. When Corel took over they almost immediately came out with version 9. I still like 7 the best. It's not a memory hog as 8 is and most likely 9 is worse.

I used to have problems with scanning old newspaper articles and old documents. I would scan in grey scale then convert to black and white. Voila the dark background disappeared. I did this with PSP. An earlier version, but I'm sure it still works in the newer ones.

DearJILL,
Thanks for the heads up. Geesh, you need a pedigree chart to keep track of who owns what.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
