I have a bitmap picture of an interstate shield. As everyone knows, the interstate shield isn't exactly Square. However, the bitmap that I have of it has a square black background, and the shield is placed on top of that background. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to trim this bitmap so that I can get rid of the square background and just retain the shield's shape? I'm using the Magic Wand to get the shield's shape, but I can't seem to get rid of the square background when I save it as a bitmap. The format must be in *.bmp and I dont have any *.psd files to fiddle with. However, if you do, please let me know :) I can't convert this file to anything else than a bitmap. If there's a way around getting the background off the picture involving conversions between picture formats, I'll gladly try it. Thanks for the help!
