I am going through scanning a bunch old photos and so far things are turning out pretty well but there are a lot of photos that have been cut around the edges so that the photos are not in perfect square or rectangle shape. I was thinking of just going through and cropping them all to it but would rather not and really want to try to preserve them in the shapes they are in. And some have rounded sides where cropping just isn't an option. When I scanned the photos it added white areas around the photos that are not part of the photo. What I want to do is see if there is a way to select the areas around the photos and delete it from the photo. I am using PSE and when I just do a delete, it just creates a white area and what I want is that entire area removed from the photo. Basically I am just trying to delete the checkered area left behind. Any idea on how I can do this? I hope I explained it so you guys can understand.
