I have tried everything to get rid of the white lines that appear around my images in gmail and nothing works.  I have created an email in Constant Contact and when I send it to gmail all the images have white lines around them.  I have tried style="display:block"  border="0' and style="line-height=0".  Nothing works, please help.

Please send me a message illustrating the issue.  It may be impossible to change the Gmail experience, but I will be glad to take a look at the document and see if there is any hope.

Try display:block in head section.  
or
set the font-size to 0 (zero) on the master table tag.

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="650" style="font-size:0;">
 <!--  email body    -->
 </table>

or
<img src="http://www.yoururl/image.jpg" height="50" width="50" style="display:block">
or
border-spacing:0;

Have you tried outline:0 or outline:none? Images inside of links in particular are affected by this.

Except for some XX to obscure clear-text things, here is exactly what I got in the email message (subject: Enter email subject here :-)

When I saw this was ConstantContact it immediately made me wonder if you've asked their tech support about the issue.  It seems like something they would very much want to correct, especially if you're using one of their templates.
