Exporting transparent background doesn't seem to work.

Exporting transparent background doesn't seem to work.
I have spent some time trying, in PaintShop Pro 7, to create an image with a transparent background to use as a layer over an underlying jpg.

The results were unsatisfactory.

I have now done it in Gimp, and tried it over another image in Gimp - it works. But when I export the image either as a GIF or as a JPG there is no transparency when I paste it over another image in PaintShop Pro.

What am I doing wrong?

Perhaps it would be easier to do the whole thing in Gimp, but it would be convenient to be able to do it in PSP too.

Yes, I'd forgotten that.

Familiarity.

I'm sure that you are correct. I shall use Gimp more often and explore it a bit more.

Thank you.
