    See that gray line (not the bergundy line)? That is what the flower looks like when you view it on this
    website I made for my client. Except I didn't have that pale grey line there in the original image file. It just shows up when I upload the image to the
    server and view the site online.

    The image is located in a table that
    is below another table. The image is in the first cell of that lower table. The
    gray line just happens to show up right at the edge of where the table cell would be.

    I've renamed the image file, re-uploaded the image, and it still shows up with
    that gray line. In Dreamweaver, when I pre-view in Firefox or Safari, I do not see this gray line.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas on this.

    I can't think of another explanation other than some sort of corruption, because the line isn't really gray so much as it appears to be a gradient from white to the same green as the background lilypads.

    Throw us a link or the original might help a bit.

    the original image

    ok, here is the original image:

    this is the same image, except uploaded to myspace instead of the original site.
    By the way, I used File Zilla to upload the image to my client's website.
    Interestingly, if I save the same slice with a different name and no link to any of the webpages,
    the image in the image folder shows up online with the line in it. In other words, if
    I go to, (a jpg that has no links to any page on the site, and
    isn't in any table or page on the site) it still shows up with the line.

    For some reason, the line is not showing up
    when I upload it onto myspace.

    figured it out

    This was the problem. I forgot I had changed the file upload settings to "upload files as ascii". For some reason the image was getting distorted when I uploaded the file as ascii (it's actually a jpeg, of course).
    I changed the settings in Filezilla preferences back to "auto" and the image file uploaded fine and doesn't have a grey line anymore.

    Glad someone mentioned the image could be corrupted...that's what got me thinking.
