In the attached image, there is a gray strip under George Washington.  It shows up very well against a white background.  How can I get rid of this strip?

using the marquee tool you can select the bottom line causing the issue > switch to the selection tool > delete the line

Adjusted file is attached.

In your original PSD, you don't have a background...

You could save the image with transparency, or just change the matte color in the save for web dialog to change it from gray to whatever color you want.

@renazonse:

The marquee tool works but I get a jagged piece by the seal.  How can I smooth it without damaging the seal?

Actually, I used the square marquee and looks as though that got it.  I'm going to implement the image into an app and then close question if that looks ok.

You could have used the marquee tool set to ellipse hold shift to constrain as a circle.

Sized to the outside of the seal then apply a stroke around your seal to tidy it up

All you have to do is hide the layer that contains the seal. Or, as long as you only have the layer with Washington selected when deleting that's the only layer that will be modified.
