you could trim the image box so that it only contained non-transparent images.

It depends... If you can change the picture, then open it up (I.E. with Microsoft Photo Editor), click Set Transparent Color and click on the background color you want. If you can't edit it then you have to use regions. For example, if there's a box (Region) in the middle that is transparent, use
If X > Region.Left and X < Region.Right and Y > Region.Top and Y < Region.Bottom Then Exit Sub
Or something like that replacing the Regions with the actual numbers. Hope that helps...?
