Would be great to have a type of lasso tool so that I could use some of the alpha freebies I have!

Hmm yes it is a pain when designers do alphas in 1 png block instead of seperates for each letter.

Yes, however, if you are using the SBM program, you can just bring in the element file, go to properties, and then do a crop. Remember to click off the 'keep aspects' check mark, so you can size to only the character that you are going to use. I usually make a copy and paste one or more times of the file first if I want to use more than one alpha character in the set. That way, I don't have to pull the file in multiple times.

Now - didn't think of doing that. Great point.
