I'm trying to make a skin using draw.
I need to make a tiny little bmp.
I can draw it ok, but when I save it, it is a huge 2meg bmp- in other words, there is my little drawing, but that is not all- the bmp includes the whole white page surrounding it- how do I save it so it is just the little picture?

Just select your drawing and then choose "File/Export..." In the saving-dialog select a bitmap file-format. Now you can activate the checkbox "selection". Only your selection is saved now.

Great tip! That is a nifty feature that is easily overlooked!
