How do you crop out the remaining part of an image

by silvertiger7 / January 25, 2015 8:58 PM PST

Usually when I export an image, the whole background gets exported too, which is usually fine except in some cases like mine right now: I'm trying to slap the logo onto a slideshow movie and each slide already has their background image.

I don't want to place a bland white square on anywhere of the screen to make the slideshow look messy.

Anybody got an excellent idea?

BTW. The slideshow is created by Corel VS.

That's called a transparent gif or transparent png. I'm sure you can make it with Corel.

I dont see that option on VS, and I do hope we're talking about the same thing.

But I tried more than A HUNDRED TIMES and it didn't work(still a damn near perfect uncropped non-transparent squary image logo)

I have saved it as a PNG file and it appears to be a perfectly cropped image in the software.

Any idea as to what could be causing this problem?

In reply to: Thanks!

I can't see what you did so maybe you can put the image up on your Public Dropbox, share a link so folk can check your image file. Or you can make a Youtube and ask for folk to check your work.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
