Trying to make User Icon but the background will not go away

I was trying to make a user icon, but the background was still in the final image, even though its opacity was 0. Now all my work is lost. :-( I have tried 3 times but it would not work. I was going to just delete the background when I was done, but I forgot to and saved it so now the individual vector layers are lost and it takes like an hour to redo it so I have almost given up. Please Help.
PS: I already have watched the tutorials and followed the instructions perfectly, also the tutorials are made with older versions of RealWorld Paint so the buttons are slightly different.

You should save the file as "RealWorld Layered Image" (.rli) to not lose the vector layers. Also if the original was .jpg, that does not support transapreancy, so for user icon purposes, you should export is as .png.
