    I made a monogram I really like in PowerPoint. I have even printed it onto transfer paper and made some really nice OOT bags with it.
    But I can't figure out for the life of me how to cut and paste it as a circle, rather than a circle with a square space around it.

    IDK if this is going to make sense to anyone, but I hope it will.
    I want to also figure out how to make it transparent, but haven't figured that out either.

    Blah! It's driving me nuts!

    I keep trying to get it to paste onto documents and it keeps being this square format.

    I hope someone understand my issue and can help.

      I think the square space will be there no matter what. Did you save it as a jpeg? I think in the past I have only been able to get gif files to save as transparent and you cant do that in Powerpoint bc then when you save as a jpeg it will black out all the transparent parts.

        I think I understand....right now it's a circular design and when you paste, it has a white, square background?

        I might be able to help...but I need to test it. Can you send me your logo if I pm you?

          Does this look right...

          Click the image to open in full size.

          If you look closely, you can see that the background (in white) is round rather than square.

          This might help...its the round image on a blue background (so you can actually see it...

            I'm pretty sure this thread is long over with, but you may need to use Microsoft Publisher... PM me if you need help, I'd be glad to help a bride in need!

              this is again all so helpful to me.  i am going to try to do some things in power point.  i don't think i have publisher on my new computer and i'm not very handy with publisher, so would be better off doing things on power point.  i just know the basics of power point, so hopefully i'll be able to crank out a few things to share with you when i've finished.  you all seem so up to date with knowing the little tricks on some of these computer programs.
