I got several photos rejected recently for having small borders on the edges. Surprised, I went and looked at my rejected photos section, and sure enough there are minute borders along the top and right side.
My question is why are these appearing? As I have never had this problem in the past, I can't help but wonder why. Recently I've been shooting with a Nikon 3100, I've also been exporting my photos through my editing software (iPhoto) instead of using a image hosting site to reduce file size. Could it be one of these, or could it even be the Anet. uploader? Am I the only one whose been having this problem?

I should only have one... the one of the prowler. I'm guessing grain/soft. I can't seem to win these days on that front. My first reaction is that is must be the camera... time for a new one! Perhaps I need to stick to broad daylight. On the other hand I just got an broad daylight L-39 shot rejected for being soft... who knows.

No I have not tried the apple support forums. In my experience, they're almost worthless. If I wanted a list of FAQs...
Anyway, in the past after editing and cropping my photo to suite, I would upload it to flickr, and from there to Anet. This is most likely what I will have to start doing again.
Recently I had been exporting the photo directly from iPhoto and uploading it directly to Anet. This allowed me to precisely max out the 1mb photo size limit giving me more control, greater quality, and unfortunately borders.

I think he's right in that it happens when I sharpen the photo. I ended up cropping the photo larger than I wanted it, exporting it (it had borders plainly visible), and then importing it, cropping it to the desired size, only to export it again, but this time without borders. Frankly its a pain in the ass, but I'm running a version of iPhoto thats one release out of date. Tomorrow I'm going to try to upgrade and see if that helps.
