    There's a box for "transparent page" that you need to check.  That should get rid of the background for you.

    When you open in PS from an eps it should keep the size of the page and open with a transparent background. If you're exporting as a PDF and then opening in PS, choose to crop to the bounding box and that should give you the size of your original document less the background.

    Do you mean when exporting to EPS? What the heck is EPS? Where exactly is this option?

    How are you (and everyone) doing!? Basically, my job for the last two and a half years has been zero challenging, and aside from playing with Interactive Designer, my Quark skills have remained stagnant. I got email notifications about this thread, so figured I would get back into action. I've been getting into DSLR stuff pretty heavy, on the Pentax platform, which allows me to use my old classic lenses. Really having a ball with it. Also published the second issue of my adult satire magazine, which I'm converting to a spec screenplay.

    That's great Ira. AFAIK everyone is doing ok. Greg (thing) is pretty much not here anymore. ID convert, but I speak with him on Facebook regularly so I'm in contact. Moved on from v6.x through 7.x to 8.x now. Generally just the usual dealing with questions.

    Glad you're back!

    I don't think you can create a JPG file without a backgound - unless you have a clipping path - which would be impossible to automate.

     I beg to differ, this is very easily done in PS and can be automated just as easily. BTW, I guess you menat to say Javascript instead of Java.

     My workflow for this would be to:

    1. Generate the backgroundless images via the "Save as EPS" function (scriptable)
    2. Open the resulting iages in Photoshop (scriptable)
    3. Crop the image based on the presence of pixels (i.e. remove extra transparent area) (scriptable).
    4. Save the resulting image as JPEG (scriptable)
    Time to process each images... seconds!
