misc: polar bear & penguin

(no subject)

I'm having issues with icons in PS7. Most of, if not all, the icons I'm making in PS7 have a 1 pixel "border" around the image. It's not an actual border, though, more like the coloring is off on the 1 pixel around the edge of the icon. Gaah, I don't know if I'm making sense.

(Icon by me.)

If you look closely you can see what I'm talking about. It's not noticeable in all of the icons, but I know it's there. I don't know why. My icon making progress is: paste image > crop > resize (I do this with "image size", is this right or maybe is this the problem?) > color/effects/etc > flatten image > save as .png, just to help. I don't do anything more or less than the steps I listed. It's probably a problem with the settings, but I don't know where/how I'd fix it.

Also, I checked the tags but I wasn't entirely sure what to look under so sorry if this has been asked/answered and I missed it. Thanks for your help in advance!

EDIT: Okay, it doesn't seem to be there after I upload the icon. What's going on!?
