So I'm helping my kid with a school project with a simple Keynote presentation.  I know how to make the whitespace around a shape in Powerpoint blend in with the background, but I can't figure out how to do the same in Keynote.  It's a simple small square pic that he wants to use for a Wild West presentation.  I've read where people have done some import/export of images into photoshop, but that's not an option for us.  I've exported the imaga and saved as a .png and re-imported it, but still no-go.  Can anyone help?  It's a Mac, and shouldn't be this difficult.  We've got Keynote '09.  Yes...'09 on a MacPro running 10.6.8.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
