Re: [Gimp-user] ghost outline

Once you make your selection, open the Select menu, Grow..., Grow selection by 1 px, click OK

Selecting areas, especially with the Fuzzy Select Tool, Select By Color Tool, etc, often leaves a border 
where the pixels don’t match the selection criteria.

Let us know if that helps.

Newbie here. When removing background from black and white line art, there
remains a thin white ghost outline around the black object. Really shows up when
a color background layer is below. Especially a problem as I want to use as a
logo. Cannot find any tutorials on this except as removing foreground image in
