I have Corel Draw 14. The transparency sucks on it, when I use the transparent tool, I drag across the image and have to select Negative to get rid of a white background, but it ends up making the image really dark.

The eraser tool is horrible, because it makes the graphic really choppy.

How can I get rid of a background on a jpg easily, or even a vector? I also have Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI and it's easy to do with that. But I have Corel Draw at work.
