This problem involves an illo to be used on a book cover in 

Some time back I took a photo of a church with a white sky 
background (OK very light gray). I was able to select and 
delete the background so now I have the church plus a 
transparent background. I saved it as png.  When i used it 
there was a very thin border of white pixels around the 
outline of the church and its steeples etc.  A Photoshop guy 
said I could select the church, invert so that the background 
was selected, enlarge the background by a few pixels and 
delete it again to get rid of the white line. But right now the 
background is just a transparency.

Currently the illo is in png form, though of course I can go 
back to the original jpg from the scanner. Using either 
product, the png or the original jpg, how do I eliminate both 
the sky and the white line? I want the background to be 
totally transparent.  I have Gimp 2.6.6 on Slackware 13.0
