    desktop image question
    I'm wanting to convert the default icons on the Desktop (i.e., Macintosh HD, folders, etc.) to Photoshop icons. Problems is JPEG, PNG, etc always leave white background behind image. How can I stop that from happening to create clean cutout images as icons instead of squared icons?

    create a clipping path around what you want to keep?....I don't know if that works with icons..never created an icon...but you'll have to make a path around the image you want as your icon (nixing the white space of course)..then you'll have to save the path, and then you'll have an option to create a clipping path....

    PNG is the format to use; just make sure you turn on transparency when you export it to a file.
