Best way to get white backgrounds?

When I use websites to remove the white background off of my pixel art sprites,it leaves behind a slight bit of white around the sprite. Is there a way to fix this? Or is there another site I should be using?

That's happening because the pixels around the edges aren't truly white. Websites probably aren't the way to go, unless they'll let you tweak the threshold. There's lots of free software available.  Such as Inkscape and Gimp.

Fairly recently I saw a thread that mentioned an awesome alternative to Photoshop and Illustrator, but I can't remember what they were! I thought I'd saved it as a bookmark, but I can't find it.

I always appreciate useful feedback. Thank you.
