          Rehan Ali,


          I believe you should use the Artboard (Tool) in CS4 to defined the boundaries of Export.

              As far as I remember, when you DoubleClick the Artboard Tool there is a option Crop to Artwork or something like that.

                It looks right to me... the crop marks are lined up with the edges...  s/he has curved corners... there's bound to be white around the curved areas...

                  It depends how you interpret the image. I was in doubt, but ended up assuming that issue was the white part on all sides; if it was just at the roundings I wonder how it could be fine in CS3.


                  I hope we shall know.

                    When exporting the file as an image file format then uncheck use art boards.


                    you get this




                    or this when opened in Photoshop as a jpeg

                    or when placed as a transparent png in a photoshop file.

                    So uncheck use artboards, keep in mind when opening in Photoshop it is perhaps best to place it in a transparent photoshop document if you want to see easily and instantly see the shape has a transparent background. File formats that do not support transparency like jpeg will not have a transparent background.
