Hmm - puzzling. As I mentioned before, I've only got PSP7 to test it with, but I'm not aware of having used anything unorthodox that would make it incompatible with other products.
However the initial separation colours (prior to any picking) are taken from the foreground and background colours set up in PSP - if these are grey levels then it may result in an undisplayable separation. If you hold down either shift or control (or both) and move the mouse over the preview, you should see the original image displayed so you can pick from it. If not, then I'm at a bit of a loss as to what's going on.
If holding the keys down while mousing over the image doesn't help, then perhaps you could put the cropped region of the high definition image somewhere as a jpeg (I haven't installed a MrSID plugin yet) and I'll have a crack at it with PSP7.

I'm having problems getting this to work as described: I can install it and
invoke it OK, but it brings up a blank white preview of the image, making
it impossible to pick colours. This happens in both Debabelizer Pro and in
PaintShop Pro 8, making me suspect that I may require an additional support
file of some sort (perhaps a stray DLL?) to get this working under Windows
XP. Note that in PSP8, the preview does briefly appear (for a frame) before
Any ideas or suggestions?
FWIW, I'm hoping to use it to lift "Dece[m]bre" cleanly from the
Sagittarius page. :-)
