Photoshop and flash 5

I am brand new to flash, but an experienced user of photoshop. I am trying to lasso a head off of a body in photoshop, and import just the head into flash. Every time I import the head, a white rectangular border appears around it.

How do I import the head only, without this annoying border?!


Export the image from photoshop as a .gif image with transparency!

Sometimes Flash doesn’t read the .gif transparency. So what you want to do is save your image as a .png.

Flash supports the transparency of the .png file. This is definitely a great feature because with a .png file, the transparency doesn’t just have to be around the edges, it can also just be a faded part of the image.
