    Can't erase certain pixels outside or inside of a selection I've made

      Hi all,

      I'm having a little problem- I can't seem to erase a bunch of pixels that outline my drawing, even after I select the whole image in the layer I'm editing. Whether the selection is inversed or not, these pixels won't go away. This is an odd problem to describe in words so I've included a picture and indicated my problem in red. Anyone know how to fix this? Note: Before this happened, I had resized the image (made it bigger), so I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it. This odd line of pixels, a little outside and a little inside of the selection line, won't go away. As you can see I tried erasing some of the image.

      I really wanted to erase the outside of this selection of the outline of my drawing, to make it look less fuzzy since I resized it. I'm not sure what's up. I'm fairly new to photoshop. (When I resized it I used the bicubic smooth / preserve details feature which really helped, but I'd still like to make the edges look a little more solid.)

       

      Thank you!
