I have selected the image I want (from a white backgound) but when I bring it into Flash is has its "bounding box" in white although I used the import to stage option to bring in just the selected image (I thought). I am sure this is a simple fix, but I am a beginner Flash person...
Make sure the selected image is on its own layer in PS.
In the import dialog you will see two layers, one for the background and one for the image. Make sure the background layer is unchecked (checkbox is on the left side of the layer).
That's a big help. I have all the images for my animation on layers and
imported the layers (un-silouhetted). Then imported the images one by one as
a selection from a flattened file. Sounds like I did a lot of extra work. I
will try this on Monday, thanks!
