Jpeg and Gif formats for images are so 90's. The format for 2000 was PNG - great improvement over both. And now there's even more formats coming. Jpeg 2000 and VFZ. The new Paint Shop Pro 8 supports the J2P format :) Oh and I'm gonna buy PSP8 tonight - $99. Good price for something that practically runs my business. And maybe after spending so much for a piece of software, I might actually start using the hi-q features. Right now I use mostly the basic features of PSP6-7.
