Transparent Background-Sketchbook Pro

I am a total newbie to Sketchbook pro and this may be a very stupid question but I cannot figure out how to create an image and it have a transparent background. I have locked the transparency... I have locked it on all layers... I have deleted the background layer. I have saved it as a png, tiff, bmp, jpeg... knowing that png is what I am wanting... I have minimized the background layer's opacity.. saved it with and without locking it...

Whenever I save the image... in any form that I have, I open it elsewhere and it still has a white background. How do I remedy that?
I've looked everywhere and can find nothing to help me

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

hi renizans,

if you are working in SBP 2010 and you want a transparent background, you have to do your work on a layer leaving the background layer empty. Save the file as a .psd (native photoshop) open in photoshop and delete or turn off your unwanted layers. SBP will save your layer structure in the photoshop file format, but doesn't with any other, not even tiff. hope that helps.

Best, Jamie.-
