For some reason, Photoshop seems to be adding a white border around my image. It's lighter than the background and stands out when viewing the created page. This is happening with two images, using 8 and 24bit PNG and as a GIF (with save for web).

Is there a reason?

Fill it with solid color (possibly using a pencil an a steady hand), you probably have a little transparency or white there. – Kobi Aug 7 '10 at 16:44

This is caused by semi-transparent pixels around the edge. When saving set your "blue" color as matte color as a quick fix.

If this is caused by transparency around the edge, you can eliminate it using the Flaming Pear Solidify filter(s) (in Free Plugins), or by duplicating and merging down the layer several times (Ctrl+J then Ctrl+E).
