I have a certain random image shape which I want to fit the canvas to. The shape is saved in one layer with the canvas. I want the resultant saved JPG image without any background (white) only the shape appearing. can anyone help?

Thank you

  • JPG files can not have transparent backgrounds. Unless your "shape" is rectangular, it will be mandatory to have a background color in the JPG format. – Scott Feb 15 '18 at 6:35
  • How to get then the desired result without saving it to JPG? – Nicolas Nasrallah Feb 15 '18 at 6:44
  • What do you need the image for? Print or web? – Wolff Feb 15 '18 at 20:13

Choose Image > Trim tick either the Transparent Pixels or the Top left Pixel Color option depending upon which is appropriate and click OK. Save.

Be aware, you can not save a JPG with transparency and all images are rectangular. So unless your "shape" is rectangular, you will need to either use a background color for a JPG, or save as a format which does support transparency such as PNG.
