How do I crop this jpg image?

I created a photo jpg image which primarily runs along the left and bottom of the rectangle canvas.  The top right corner appears as a white background. I have been trying to crop this out to avoid overlapping another image on my web page.  However, I haven't had any luck.  My goal is to crop out the top right corner so it doesn't block another image.  Is this possible to do with a jpg image? I don't want to covert it to a transparent gif because it sacrifices image quality.  I'd appreciate any possible solutions.  

Thanks, Russ

You cant crop out corners and leave an irregular shaped graphic. All graphics end up being rectangular in shape. It isnt possible to have a 6 sided image. BUT you can use the slice tool in photoshop to crop the image up and create an HTML table that will create such an illusion on a website.

well archin  

 what i feel is ! why dont u Crop the Jpg ! Over Lap it on the Necessary other Image ! and make it a Single Image? is it not possible in ur case ?

 What i mean to say is cut the Unnecessary portions of ur Image that is the top Right white part !Remove it ! put another layer below that - Insert ur other pic ! merge layers and save that as a single Jpg !. Is it not Possible in Ur case ?

I donno ! exactly ! how ur image looks !

Or else another possibility is  ! having ur overlapping other image as transparant background one ! using Layers and positioning the image on the Base Image what u have Created now. ! Even if the top Right is Opaque - this over lapping image sits over it i mean on other layer and gives the same feeling !

Could U try this possibility ?
