How to fix 1px lighter border?

This has been bothering me for awhile, so I figured I should just ask and see if someone can help me out. Whenever I crop an image or even cut and paste to a new image, I get a lighter area that is a 1pixel "border" around the image. It makes my icons look wonky and unfinished, so I was wondering if someone knew how to get rid of this? Somehow, I think my way of darkening the area is probably not the easiest way to fix it and it's getting pretty old.

Okay, so? Sometimes I lie. It's like a tick.

Okay, so I did say that I wasn't going to write any tutorials for a while, but what can I say? I'm a big fat liar! This may be pretty basic stuff, but I had fun making it none-the-less. I used PhotoShop Elements 4.0 to make this. Let me know if this is helpful for you. This is a tutorial about color & special text effects and was completed in Photoshop Elements 4.0

Show me the way, baby.

Question of the day?

I just wanted to know....Doesn't anyone out here use Corel Graphics Package? Everybody seems to be using Photoshop, but my computer is Corel-oriented.

If anybody DOES use Corel, why doesn't he/she post their tips on this site?

Gah, I really hate to bother you people with this, but I DID look in the memories.

I vaguely remember a tutorial for vibrant/bright colors, searched in the memories for the keyword and came up with nothing. I use PS CS - usually end up with fiddling around with the 'match color' settings and the curve settings trying to get bright/vibrant colors, but it doesn't satisfy me. So, if anyone could tell me the right keywords/or show me way to a tut ... you'd rock. And I feel like an utter fool for not managing to find the tutorials. w.w Because I usually do.

Also, anyone an idea of what colors might have been used in blend mode for this icon? I'm guessing a dark green color ... but not too sure. Because I do like the coloring and aye, did ask the icon maker, who goes by the name of fadeto. Apparantly, this icon also has been customized by someone else by the time I found it. [From the looks of it, they just added a brush.] Not wanting to flame, just clearing up things.

And major thanks to anyone who can help me!

Seeking help with coloring

I made this banner last week, and I was playing around with the coloring, experimenting and what not. Well I really like this coloring, and because I was mucking about, I don't even know how I achieved this. I tried and tried to figure it out, but I don't know what I did. Please if anyone can help, it would be much appreciated :-)

why do my animated gifs look strange?

This hasn't happened to me before when using ImageReady in PS7 but recently when I save the animated gifs I make they turn out weird looking-->


one of the original pics--> http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/6577/wbiconsample5ex.jpg

the images I use are PSD and I save "optimized as." I've even tried optimizing the gif before saving it, but the quality still ends up looking compromised, and I can't figure out what the problem is.

Can anybody help?
