the way picture rotates is that the image gets rotated but the image dimentions remain the same. So you need to have a border around your picture so that image itself doesnt get cut.

then you just use picMerge as your mode so that white becomes transparent

well one way is to open up your picture in an image editing software (preferably Photoshop, but even MS Paint will do). Open it up on a larger canvas size then the image itself and center it in the middle, leaving enough white space around your picture. Then save it.

Coordinates of the picture will be off because of the border, but when you rotate, the border should get cut off, not the image itself... If it is still getting cut of, just save it with a larget boarder.
