I remember with old Phtoshops there was a "trim" option in the image menu. This was useful for getting rid of the transparent background once I was done messing around with this and that. My version does not seem to have this option, nor have I found any other way to simply trim the cavas down to the width/hieght of the image. I know I can crop it manually, but this is not as exact as the old trim button was.

Am I missing something?

Not all features of Photoshop are present in Photoshop Elements.  I don't think a trim option has ever been available in Elements.

There are several ways to "Trim Transparent Pixels" in photoshop elements including

Command or Ctrl clicking on the Layer Thumbnail in the layers panel to load a

selection around the layer contents and then going to Image>Crop and Select>Deselect.

If you have more than one layer to include in the "Trim" then Command or Ctrl click on one

layer then Shift + Command or Ctrl click on each additional layer to include those layers

contents in the selection before going to Image>Crop.
