I need to save an image with a transparent background. I have tired on both draw and photo paint with no luck. The object always merges and gives me a white background. Can someone tell me how to do this?  I need a png if possible.

Thank you for your time

Why PNG? What is the end-purpose of the file? That info is important because PNG may not be your best file format to use.

have you tried in a new file to set 'no backgound' and deleting any layers that do not have any images on them, i would think then when it merges them all, whatever was not an image, would have no information and be transparent, just guessing though.

Exporting from Corel Draw:

1. select the object
2. File -> Export
3. check the box 'Selected only'
4. choose .png format

5. in the next window choose RGB and max quality (300 dpi)
6. check the box Transparent Background

7.in the next window choose 'mask' (instead of 'none')

If You open the exported file in Photoshop You will have transparent background. If necessary You can resize image using lower resolution, etc.
