    I keep getting a thin black border around my pictures when I try to crop. I do not want it. Once I crop and print, the black border appears in the print.

    How do I get rid of it? What am I doing wrong?

    I'm using CS2, I haven't used 6. But I think what you're seeing is just the programs manipulation of the 'edge' of the picture. It doesn't show up in a print.


    If you open it up with another program after cropping, do you still see the border?

    It is showing up in my print though. I want to print without the thin black border.

    This ONLY happens if I crop the picture, then print.

    I primarily use PS6, I've never gotten on well with CS. I've never noticed this when I crop though. Sorry, probably not much help...

    I know this sounds dumb, but Make sure you're using the croping tool?

    I would get borders if I tried cropping, then move it manually, and if I move it off the picture (into the grey area where there is no image), I get a border.

    it could be what photong says, make sure your using the cropping tool and not using a marque to crop. If you are using the marque, it could be that you have a stroke set to one pixel or something

    i used to have 6 and never had this problem. Either there is something wrong with what you're doing, ie wrong tool or you have pressed something in a option window somewhere.
