    I am new to photoshop. I posted last week and someone explained how to
    remove the background from an image which worked great.

    Now I notice that when I save an image as jpeg for web it has a grey
    border which I can't figure out how to remove. Anyone know what I am
    talking about?

    No; Save for Web should not add anything, not even a border.

    Question: is the image you are trying to save transparent? JPEG does not
    permit transparency.

    No I am not trying to save as transparent just as JPEG with white

    There should be no border, gray or otherwise, placed on the image.

    Do you by any chance have an image in layers? Perhaps there's some
    transparency going on you're not seeing. In the Save for Web dialog,
    what's specified as a "matte color"? If you have gray as your matte
    color and there are transparent or translucent areas of the image, they
    will be gray in the JPEG.

    I checked the matte colour, it is set to none, even if I set it to
    white I see a thin grey border around the image canvas if thats right -
    I mean when I save to web it saves the image and the area around it in
    a box, that box is the grey border. I really can't find where its
    coming from.

    You should said the matte colour to the colour of the background.

    The background is white and I set the matte colour to white also.

    Can you post a link to a picture that shows this grey border?

    have you tried cropping it off? I had a small transparent area on an edge
    and I got that edge showing.
    Is there a layer effect on it?

    Save the image as a JPG and then navigate to the image, right-click on it
    and open with a browser. Does the gray still show up???
