Default problems trimming images

Hi all

Wonder if you could help at all.

I started manipulating some pics last night and have had a problem.

I am using Ulead Photo express 4.

I firstly resize down to 800 X 600 pixels.

I then rotate to starighten where needed and then trim.

When trimming I leave a fair bit of the image outside the trim area to avoid including any bits that are now outside the frame after rotating.

Yet despite this i have a very, very thin white border , almost like a frame, BUT only down the right and along bottom of image not left or top !!

What's going on ?

Any pointers anyone please ?

Thanks

Stef

I don’t have this software installed, but I remembered something …
It’s possible that a feature adding a “glass frame “ is still ON , with a width of few pixel .
(usually, this feature add a glass frame with 45 deg cut glass border look)

What you are doing wrong is using the trimming feature and not the cropping tool. (It took me a year to figure this out). Yes, the trimming feature will always leave that two sided white border (it's supposed to).
What you need to do is use the "Selection" feature. Choose the "select by shape" tool; use this to outline the area you want to crop, click on the "next" button, which brings you the the second screen, and click on the "crop with current selection" button. Done.
No white border! :P
