removing background
Hi, I managed to remove the background, of an image,(A whit background) and put the image on top of a transparent layer. made a transparent image. When I place this image over a light color background, it looks fine, but when I place it over a dark color background, the edge of the image looks very rough and dirty, I think it's because some of the anti alias from the original image, how can I make it a clean image without going to delete pixel by pixel?

RE: removing background
I don't know if you can... When you removed the image off the white background, did you Alpha To Selection?

See my answer in this thread: http://gimpforums.com/thread-changing-a-...62#pid1962

Basically you have to use color-to-alpha, with some safeguards.
