That sounds like a question about Photoshop Elements.
if it is, you may want to post it to the Photoshop Elements forum.
If this is a Premiere Elements question, please give us more information about your project setup.
What program and version are you using and on what computer operating system is it running? It would appear that you are working with some version of Photoshop Elements (photo editor). You have posted in the Adobe Premiere Elements Forum (video editing).
If this is what I suspect, then please repost your question in the Adobe Photoshop Elements Forum or wait for a moderator here to see your thread here and move it from here to there.
While we are waiting for that to happen, have you tried to use a selection tool to select the white around the frame and then press Delete?
Sorry, this is a PSE question. I'll go to that forum. Thank you
A canvas is always rectangular. To make it transparent:
- Double-click the background layer to make it a regular layer.
- Use the Magic Wand to select the white areas around the frame.
- Press Delete.
- Save the file in a format that supports transparency (.psd, .tif, .png. *NOT* .jpg).

Yes, I am in the wrong community. And yes, I have used the magnetic lasso selection tool - then delete, but the full frame is still there, only blank. This is is for a slide show, so being blank may project to the screen OK. And come to think of it, any prints made will be OK too. What was I thinking?
If needed, I will go to the proper PSE community.
Just a point of clarification...originally I suggested the use one of the selection tools to remove the white around the frame that you presented. I saw your reply 5 and responded to it to clarify what I had in mind which was not the magnetic lasso selection tool.
When I posted the details of what I had in mind (including screenshot), I did not see post 4 which went in the same direction that I had.
Maintaining transparency in the deleted area can sometimes be problematic, even with png save. Depends what the fate is for the saved file.
Best wishes with your projects.
