    a tube is what psp (paint shop pro) users call a transparent background image

    in psp they are saved as a psp tube but work the same as a png

    I had visions of something like the inside of a toilet roll!

    A tube from a roll of toilet paper will do nicely, cause at the end of it, the background is transparent and you can look right through it. Makes a great telescope!!!!

    It's what some ladies wear and the Springm also referred to as "a tube top"...most in need of the fashion police!

    LOL .... toilet roll tubes indeed

    They are almost similar, i know a Paint Shop Pro tubes can have several images - lets say for example, billiard balls - on one "tube". When I load the tube up in PSP, each click I make on my paper will put a random image from the tube at the point of my cursor. I'll link 2 pics for you, one of the actual tube, the 1st pic [this will not be in the tube format as I cant load them in here] and one of a picture I have made using the tube, the 2nd pic. Hope this helps.

    Not all tubes have several images on them and in that case they would act in the same way.

    Default ok i think i get it

    looking at this through the toilet roll a tube can be a whole page ( with no background) with more than 1 picture on it that you can individually click and use............but in sense it is the same as png..........
    thanx for clearing that up

    i had images of hollow tubes in my head LOL
    or is it images of tubes in my hollow head

    there is a stand alone programme that you can convert a psp tube into png -- ive not tried it myself as i have psp

    just remember most psp tube sites have a notice on site stating the tubes are for personal use only so you cant share the tube - read the terms of service as some state you can share the tube if you adapt it and some say if you credit them and some dont care what you do with them!
