I'll try 2 help, just answer:

1) Are your plug-ins set on black transparency?

2) If so, what type of files are they (e.g. bmp, jpeg, tif, ect.)

PS, what is this doing in the plug-in request section, surely it should be in Support and FAQ, oh well.

It is probably the jpeg problem, open the file and do ALL the black again, once done save it as a 24-bit bitmap, then make the plug-in again.

If you need the specifics on the problem, this might be wrong, but I think that a jpeg is a compressed file type and so might make some black near another colour a very dark grey. A 24-bit bitmap is not compressed so Tada!

Ps, that might all be wrong, but I think it'll work.
