hi Joey
the workaround with the background of an image same as my background croped 
etc. work but only for static image, if the image can have dynamic position 
then it won't be working. In my idea user of my site can place the image 
wherever he wishes to so it not so easy after all. Now i found another 
problem i need to make some nice border for the rotated image maybe i will 
be able to hite those white backgrounds places with it but i don't know 
exacly how :)
regards Tomek
