    paste an orange?

    Hi guys.
    I am quite new to flash an am having great fun and happy with my results so far but one question keeps limiting my creativety:

    -How do i import/paste just one little selection from a photoshop pic?
    I have got this picture with a whole lot of fruit but want just the orange in my animation.
    Whatever i try i always get a white frame/canvas around it in flash.
    deleting the background does not help.

    It can not be that hard i supose? Do i have to work with masks or transparent backgrounds or schould it be done via illustrator?
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    I'm not a guru, but I'll try to help you.

    You can do it in a few steps. First, cut precisely your orange and paste it to a new photoshop document. Set its background to transparent (or try save for web -> gif-> transparent). If you have a one-color background in your animation, you can set the background color in photoshop to it. I hope it works

    yes, tranparent gif or png is the answer, unless you mask it in flash with another object/colour.

    Well, as far as I know, you can't edit an imported image in Flash (except from changing the color if made as an MC).

    U can crop it using the Magic wand or the Lasso tool.
    To use those features ( & also the eraser tool) just click on the Image U wanna edit & then rite click(on the mouse) & hit break apart. it'll work just fine after that.
