I have a layer, which I would like to save as an image. See enter image description here

(the image is the complete button) When I choose the layer and choose file->save for web.. it save the image with the transparent background. I would like save the image without the background - just the image itself (which is way smaller than the full one)

How can I do it?

I am using PhotoShop CS5

  • Choose Image > Trim and tick the "Transparent Pixels" option.
  • Save for Web
  • If you want the full image back, choose Edit > Step Backwards

You need to crop it to the image dimension first.To select the image only, in your case it is the white rectangle/button,use crop tool(C) and drag a rectangle around the image and hit enter to apply.Then file-->save for web
