Question
Good day
Lets say that I design a logo in adobe illustrator or photoshop and the logo is round. How do I save the round logo and remove the edges of the square background. The page I designed the logo on is square and the logo is round - so there is a space on the four edges. What can one do to remove the spaces on the four edges when saving the logo - so that one gets a round logo.

Regards,
Sunil

Answer
All images are based on square height and width. So you cannot make a round image. However you can make a transparent layer from the Background Layer. Double click it and click OK when it gives you a dialog box called "Layer 0". After that create your round logo. Notice the edges are transparent (checkerboard shapes). Now save as GIF, PNG or a layered format such as PSD to maintain the transparency "round" appearance.
