Why figma assets has blank space (on export to zeplin or own folder)

Hello,
When i export assets to zeplin or my own folders, assets has blank space.
For example;
On figma i can see duck without blank size;


But when i export to zeplin or my own folder duck has lot of blank space from top ect.;

How can i export without blank spaces? Anbody knows?

The answer is simple: that’s because it’s implemented in such a way that it takes the absolute bounding box of the rotated image. (Imagine if it was a completely filled image — you would have parts of it cut off.)

Workaround: wrap this image in a non-rotated frame with the necessary bounding box and export it.
