Dear all,

I thought this would be quite easy but it isn't...

I would like to be able to mark areas on a map with round points. I 
already have the round points as a separate graphic with a transparent 
background. When I use Image.paste(im, (10, 10)) the paste works but the 
background of the pasted image is white rather than transparent. I think 
that I should be doing something with a mask but I don't quite understand 
how this works. Thanks for any tips.
