Tip #61. Why do most digital scrapping kits use .psd files for elements and .jpg files for the papers? It is not possible to have a transparent background in a .jpg file. Instead of having the element by itself, you’d have the element and a square or rectangular shaped white area behind it. Ugh. Just uber-ugh. If you have purchased a ‘Quick Drop’ kit, where you have to add your own photos to an already created page, you want to get files that are not in .jpg format. It is easy to layer photos in behind a transparent hole in the layout.
