PNG or JPG image for website has hazy outline

I'm using Photoshop and Fireworks to try to simply add a gif or jpg image to my website at  The image in question is the upper right one, "Powered by:"  

There seems to be a hazy outline around the words and the logo, instead of the crisp, white background I want. I've played with different resolutions, transparent and non transparent images, and can't seem to get it quite right. The original logo does not have this haze around it, nor obviously does the text when creating the image.

Thanks in advance!

I don't see the logo in question. What software do you use to create the image, and does the image look ok when displayed there?

The logo is in the upper right of the home page at, which says "powered by: KeyRingThing."

I'm using Photoshop and/or Fireworks from Adobe. It looks fine in those software applications ... it's only after I use it on the website that it looks like noise, or a shadowy haze, all around the logo and words "powered by."  Thanks.

Not seeing any 'powered by:" anything, however if you have trouble with gray halo, I suspect that you are creating gif's with transparent backgrounds and having problems with anti-aliasing. Try saving the same file as a PNG instead of a GIF and see if it makes a difference.

For more background info, take a look at the tutorial I made for the last part of this question:
