what colour is your fireworks canvas?
what options are you using for export?
how are you setting the tranparency?
The canvas started off with the same background image as the site, but I
didn't export it - the colour was white at this point. Now wondering if it
picked something up from it, but it doesn't show up when I view the images
The export options were css and images
The transparency is set to alpha (adaptive gif).
Can't think of anything else to add...I've not been using Fireworks for long
so tend to use the default settings.
can you post a copy of your fireworks png file (the actual file not an exported version)

when i opened your fireworks doc, right clicked on that slice and exported slice as gif i didn't get any white parts
Hi, just tried re-exporting it (this slice only) and am still getting the white edges so figure we must be doing something different. I'm viewing it in dreamweaver (obviously) on a dark background....does your exported version look perfect under these conditions? Maybe its a dreamweaver problem?
HI, thanks - but - I need the version without the purple background (ref the original url) - sorry, because I'd put it back into the png for another demo and forgotten to take it out of the version I put online. The white lines are appearing on the sides of the photo which obviously don't exist on your version.
They also don't show up on a white canvas which makes it slightly trickier to test.
Any chance you could have another look? It would be good to nail this as it does look unprofessional, especially round the corners on the round-edged rectangles.
Never thought of that - will have a go,

alternativly you could set the bakground to tranparent in your main fireworks file, hide the layer below that area youwant to xport and export the slice with the same settings as i had
i bet the next thing you're going to ask about is the animated gif of new music, well that's too not really going to work on a fixed background so you wuold be better having a static button instead.
Er, yes - I was going to ask about the New music gif - assuming you're meaning the quality of the text (horrible). Unfortunately, the customer really wants something with some animation. I suppose the only thing I could do is take the text out of the gif, put it in in DW instead, and just make the oval border change colour?
if you must have an animation then keep the oval the same colour (i.e. not changing in the gif) and animate the text only. personally i would make them a nice big static 'button' and present that to them and hope to win them round with that
Yep, I agree - but unfortunately they like this one, and haven't complained
about the quality. I'm just being picky because it looks unprofessional but
maybe I should let well alone. Out of interest, is there any way of
animating in DW (without using jquery etc)? I know there used to be
something you could do with layers but am not sure if its still there?
i don't see much point in doing it with layers - not even sure how you would do that to be honest it looks tacky anyway, i would either gently push the "i'm the designer, trust me angle" or then just leave it as it is
Yes, that's pretty much what I thought!
