How do I get rid of the white border around my custom vehicle?

I am trying to make my own vehicle, but everytime I do it, I have a white border around the image. I am a rather novice'er. Is there a way to crop out the image without having the frame around it?

Save it as a PNG file. If it keeps happening, crop the image or make the white part transparent (Magic wand > Delete). Otherwise, ask the paint.NET people what to do. I really don't know.

What exactly are you making and with what? Do you want a transparent GIF or something? L

yeah, I am just using a single .gif as the vehicle
OK so you want to save as GIF with a transparent background.

Lview should do this, but I don't know about the free version in that link.
I believe coffee cup will too, but there'll be limitations on the free version.
See if you can find anything on

so there is no way to use to cut out a part of a .gif and it not have a frame? Because I can cut out the .gif, but when I try to paste it on a 2881x160 layer it pops up with a frame, it is transparent, but it still shows up on my Garmin.
I don't know what is but I can e-mail you an old version of Lview which will let you save transparent gifs. L

could it be something with or my converter... I converted one of Garmin's .srf to .png and then safed it with as a .png and then tried to convert it back to a .srf and the white border was there?!?!? this is driving me crazy, I have copied and pasted about 450 pictures, and still a white border.

In PhotoShop-type programmes, there is a "magic eraser" which will delete blocks of the same colour, even if they are irregularly-shaped. You simply select the tool (in my old version of "Adobe PhotoShop Elements" it looks like an actual eraser, with a small "twinkle" added at one end), and click on the patch of colour (in your case, white) to delete it and leave a transparent area.
