White/purple border over image
Good afternoon Forum,
I came across a problem. I have a logo that had a white background and I did a Alpha to transparent on it to remove the white. Now I get this purple/white line around the image. Anyone know a fix?

RE: White/purple border over image
Working on a copy of your logo:

click the background with "Fuzzy Select too/magic wand"

Grow the selection by 1 or 2 (it will acutally shrink selection and delete the purple line)
push delete

it should erase some of that,


if there is little to no purple in your logo itself, you can try
Colors > Color to alpha

Then do your best to match the purple color outline
