Line surrounding images after cropping

Recommended Posts

I am trying to crop product photos and add a solid white backdrop to the photos.  I am cropping the photo, then using the Free Hand Selection Tool to cut out the image.  I then delete the background and change it to white.  However when i export the image file there is a gray line surrounding the image.  Even if i use the Pixel Tool to change the border pixel by pixel to white, when i reexport the image, the gray line still surrounds the image.

any tips on getting rid of the surrounding line?

thank you!

Hi, Liz Gabel


What type of export file are you creating? ".jpg" will add compression artifacts, tho' usually those a bits of noise close to the white and color area boundry. If exporting to .jpg, try .tif.
