I have a JPG image that I want to place into Flash - The picture contains a picture of a BASKET on a WHITE BACKGROUND. My problem is that, all I want is the basket, and not the white background.

Basically, I want to be able to place the basket image on a colored background - so that the white background of the JPG is transparent. (I've tried breaking the image apart and deleting the undesired white background, however this makes the final graphic looks like $#!+.)

I believe that the key to this is using image masking, however I am not sure of what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
