You need to make a clipping path.

DO NOT use the magic wand to make a path. A path created from a selection is
always poor quality, inferior to a path created with the Pen tool. Learn to use
the Pen tool. It takes practice, but you will be glad you did.
To make a clipping path:
Create your path. In the Paths palette, double click on it (it will be called
"Work Path") and give it a name.
Now, from the Paths palette flyout menu, choose the Clipping Path command.
In the Clipping Path dialog, choose the path you just made.
Save the file as a TIFF or EPS.
