Hi,

I have extracted an image from the background and trimmed it. However, the trim still leaves a little box around my image (even though the background is gone i.e. there is a tiled background). However, when I save the image as a jpeg (or anything else) it still produces the background.

How can I export JUST the image without a white background? Thanks!

Anthony

JPEGs do not support Alpha channels...

Make an alpha channel.... then save PICT, TIFF, or TGA

Thanks for you reply,

Unfortunately, I still get the white background in TIFF and the other formats...

I am trying to make just an arrow so I can paste it in vegas pro video I am making, but I am trying to get rid of the white background...

Is there something I am missing about what you suggested? I created an alpha channel (and the image turned a bright red) and then I saved as a TIFF (and the other formats) but the quicktime viewer still shows a while background....

Did you even WATCH the video I posted...

you need to MAKE an ALpha Channel.... then save in a format that SUPPORTS alpha channel and INCLUDE it in your save.

Watch the video in the response above

Thank you for the video it was certainly informative...

Unfortunately I am still getting the white background...which raises the question of whether my programs support what I am trying to do.

When I open the tiff file I use quicktime viewer, and when I try to import the image into my video, I am using Sony Vegas. Are these programs not compatible with what I am trying to do?

UPDATE!!!!!!!!

The issue was the formating. Sony Vegas cannot use TIFF...BUT, if you render as a PNG you do not get the background.

Thanks for the help!

Richard, the video won't load. I have Flash 10.2 Is there another source for this video? Also does it address haloing?
Thanks;

save it as a gif or png ether one will work without the background, if you save it as a jpeg it will leave a white background even if you started your project transparent.
