Hi - this should be an easy one (just guessing).

I want to import an image (object) that has a white background, cut it out (lasso) and save it as a PNG-file (transparent background) for use in a DTP program. Works fine except that the resulting area of the file is far to large (small image (object) in the middle). Have tried cutting the file first to the dimentions of the image (object) I want, but after importing, lassoing, cutting and saving as PNG - I still get an object surrounded by a large useless transparent area. It seems that this has something to do with the masking area that is automatically attributed to the file (no matter the size of the imported file). Can't find the solution in the documentation.

Thanks Dragonfish
