    As an admin for a graphics site when a 'rip' is uploaded/discovered it automatically taints every/all uploads by the same person. We look a little deeper and typically IP-ban the person outright. ...;)

    You don't even need png as a format....PSP's default format will preserve trans. Alignment can be an issue without markers...hence the bmp option provided the layer opacity is at 100 and you have an easy fill colour to cut out again once applied to a layer set. Life's just all too easy with these layer thingies....I spent the first decade or two of CG doing it all flat...you know, like good old 'painting'...;) If you do go down the road of making your own....make it as big as your system can handle....4096 is the go... You'll hit 32bit proggy memory issues sooner or later...but I've found PSE 2.0 survives better than PSP6...so when PSP chokes I switch to PS Elements ...;)

    Might be a pain in the butt...but if you can access the psd's in Gimp....and export each individual layer as a bmp you could then recompile them as a new psp in your psp7. Where there's a will there's a way...;)

    Ditto...when my psp/psd files get too big I switch to Elements 2 ...was a freebie with a graphic card eons ago. I started in 'graphics' before computers could...but via them starting in Dos....first PSP was probably 3 . If you get to the point where Adobe's modern PSDs push people to upgrade....push back....google 'any' alternative and deny Adobe their imprest....;)

    One possibility is it's an issue with IE10. Ages ago when 10 came out I updated and subsequently FSX failed to load at all ...so I went back to 9. Likewise when IE11 came out. Needless to say I'm still on 9. Searching suragatecom.exe got me to here... http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-files/why-does-dllhostexe-com-surrogate-consumes-memory/bd7e42bb-802d-4eb9-95b2-2bb6b566996d ...which mentioned issues with 10 and other updates. There's a distinct possibility good old MS Update is the culprit...;)

    I don't believe the Op is experiencing an actual 'crash' but in fact a loss of focus that causes FSX to minimize from Full Screen. That's not a crash but simply a RUDE interuption by another process. To get back into the game full screen you can alt-tab to hilight FSX and then hit 'enter' ...it'll be back to normal. Unfortunately too many program makers think THEIR program is more important than anything you might be doing and they WILL steal focus from you and minimize whatever you only 'thought' was more important - in our case ....that's FSX. If it all becomes too much to bear the solution is to hunt down EVERY program/process that thinks it's superior/important and shut it down...disable it....uninstall it....or at the very least tell it NOT to be always checking for...

    Modern MS OSs have been known to interrupt full-screen games on occasion. There's nothing actually WRONG with your system....other than telling processes to simply butt-out while you are gaming. One famous one is your AV ... but just about anything can trip out FSX ... Skype's another 'good' one.....some settings/options in Windows Update....and just about any Proggy updating service.... Don't panic .... if your system is actually going to self-destruct you'll smell it soon enough...;)
