Thanks, as I mentioned earlier, that helped. I have a new problem now
the image I'm drawing on is a transparent PNG, and any text that's drawn is
also transparent, i.e. it just 'cuts out' pieces of the image instead of
colored text.. how do I fix that?
PS: I'm not on the list so I would appreciate a CC.
