One of the things about Ken's question is that he never said what he
wanted this clipped out/exported graphic for. An issue with your
solution is that you are transforming RGB to an inkjet printer output,
then scanning, with all the color shift and resolution loss inherent in
that process. For some uses, perhaps Ok, but for many others, not very good.
