Fixing my banner
I recently created a web banner with gimp. When I used the banner for my website I noticed that their is an off-white outline around the text and images within the banner. How can I correct this? The page is http://daydreamercreative.cloudaccess.net/. Thanks in advance.

These are JPeg artifacts, caused by JPEG compression. You should be using the PNG format for that kind of images (good rule of thumb for websites, since 1990: use PNG for everything, except real photos).

You banner should look this:

[attachment=398]

Note how the background in that one is transparent (the black in the thumbnail is just the thumbnail generator misbehaving), so that your page background shows through (something you can't do with JPeg). Of course, this image isn't perfect because I made it from your already imperfect image. If you still have your original XCF file or redo it from scratch you can make it perfect.
