how to save a jpeg without the white background

Hello all,
this may be a pretty basic question, but how do you save a psd file as a jpeg without the damn white background. i.e. say my canvas is 200 X 200 but my image is 160 X 180 how do I save just the image without the extra space showing up around the image as white or whatever. This mostly relates to webdesign. Any help is much appreciated as I am very frustrated. :)

You could make the background the same color as that of the web page, which would effectively render it invisible.

To be rid of the white background, you'll have to save to a format that supports transparency. JPEG doesn't. You need GIF or PNG.

It also sounds like you have extra space on your canvas that you don't want to show up. Use the crop tool to resize your canvas to include just the image you want.
