    If you want pure white, draw a temporary rectangle, move it to a layer beneath the snowman, and color it anything that will contrast with white. You can select and delete this rectangle later, when you no longer need it to see the snowman.

    However, snow usually appears a tiny bit blue (when it's not slushy and gray). You could make the snowman a very light blue.

    The hardest part in RDP is when you have a snowman shape and want to use brushes to paint on the objects. The background becomes a light checkerboard when you select a brush tool. Many of us several times have asked Oscar (the developer) to allow us to substitute other colors besides checkerboard, but for whatever reason, this hasn't happened.

    On the attachment below:
    1 = Light blue snowman with red rectangle positioned behind (on the layers, it's the 2 highlighted objects, the circle being the snowman)
    2. Light blue snowman with radial gradient that goes from very light blue to a darker blue (this is too much blue, but you get the idea).
    3. Color pane showing the colors and the radial gradient for (2).

      Hi all

      I have just joined and am from Townsville, in sunny North Queensland, Australia. I am having a bit of trouble getting started by posting a new thread, so am jumping into yours. )

      Hey, all I really need to know at this stage is whether scrapbook.max will work on a mac computer. I know a lot of these things only work on windows based computers. Does anyone out there operate on a mac.

      Thanks so much.
