Problem With Cropping

I've been noticing when cropping an picture to icon size, that it's been putting this weird looking gray edge sort of thing around all four sides of the icon. Sometimes, I can fix the problem by using a light blur or smudge brush, but sometimes it's (as in the gray lines) too strong to do that. Is there something I can do to stop this from happening, because imo it's making my icons look pretty tacky =(

Totally forgot to say I'm using Photoshop CS3 and that I'm using a single screencap, I always crop before adding coloring etc. Should I wait until the end to crop?

* edit * The advice given works wonders, thanks a lot :)

color problem on PSCS4


I've been having color problems with my photoshop CS4. A picture would look fine when I look at it on my Mac, but once I put it in PS, the color tone turns out to be really weird: the skin tone would turn red. I figured that I'd just adjust the icon accordingly, but when I'm finished, the finished result would look really off, either it's too light, or it would look gross.Collapse )

How I can do this?

How I can do this? I mean, put the background behind them without interfering in the bodies. I know, it's a texture, but how I cant make this? Look likes this photo. http://everglowmedia.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=816&pos=81
