      Hi Guillermo

      If you copy and paste a selection onto a new and transparent background then "save as" Tiff, when you reopen it shows as Layer 1 with no background.

      Is this what you were asking?

        Hi Guillermo, if I understand right, you are wanting to extract from an image, and first wish to duplicate the background so you can extract from it.
        To copy the background, open your layers palette, and drag the background to the new layers icon (its at the bottom of the palette next to the bin).
        There will now be 2 layers, background and background copy, and you can perform your extraction using the background copy. To save, do a "save as", and save as a PSD or TIFF file.

          Question about saving a transparency
          by kneff
          I have used an image (with the opacity lowered), and traced a part of it to a transparency. When I go to save the transparency, it is saving the entire image and not just what I traced. I am tracing on a new layer. Can someone tell me how to do this.
