    Make a while lining or border around everything to avoid the problem.

    1. Select the white.
    2. Select > Inverse Selection
    3. Select > Feather

    Work with that and do a feather of a good amount of pixels and once you do, get a white brush and brush in the selected feather.

    What program did you use to make your logo? Photoshop is the obvious choice or you could try using Gimp which is freeware: http://www.gimp.org/

    This should help to explain why it looks rough when you change the backgroundd colour:

    Why not just save it as a png file, with a transparent background? That way you can have it on any color and you will be set.

    First off, you can't do shit with such a small GIF file you posted. Second, GIF files always suck when used with their alpha channel. Unless you want a white stroke around everything, you have to taylor each GIF file to it's intended background. If you're going to do that, then it'll look better if you make a JPG with your background already in it. Or if you insist, make an uncompressed PNG file with an alpha.

    Photoshop and bittorrent just naturally go together.
