white showing up as transparent in MapInfo

Recommended Posts

I'm inserting custom symbols into MapInfo, the images for the symbols must be bmp's. I originally used paint to manipulate the image's with white in certain places but when I insert this image in MapInfo it becomes tranparent. I have downloaded a copy of Paint.Net and had a play with this but I'm still getting the same result?

What do I need to do to created a bitmap image where the white doesn't become transparent?

Sounds like a problem with MapInfo, then.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thanks for the ideas, I have tried Boltbait's suggestion and this has worked for me. Because the symbols that i'm inserting a very small the off white colour I have used still looks white. I have attached the image for you to have a look at if your interested, in jpg format.
