1 pixel inner semi-transparent border on image
I have spent hours trying to do this simple task in Gimp without luck and hope someone can help me. What I'm looking for is the border effect (without outer shadow) seen in the three embedded screenshots in this image: http://th03.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/20...3df2ot.jpg

In inkscape it's a matter of adding a square on top of the image with identical dimensions and making the stroke colour semitransparent and the fill colour completely transparent, but image quality suffers badly when exporting from svg to png or jpg again, and I'd prefer doing it in Gimp.

So, take image, say 100 by 100, add 1 pixel inner transparent border - how? I have seen this effect enough to suspect it's a filter option but haven't found anything in my filters :o(
