Trouble with Intermediate Progress bar (Black Border around image)

Hello.
I was wandering if you could help me out with a problem. When I was imaging the loading bars in my theme I came across a problem. See in the picture provided, my slider has these nasty black lines around it. It doesn't show it on photoshop though.
Any reason why?

Put the images from (below) in a zip folder and post it here, I will look at them.

Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Indeterminate > MoveOverlay

Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal > PulseOverlay

Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal > MoveOverlay

I'm only working with the Indeterminate > MoveOverlay, Normal > PulseOverlayVertical, and Normal > MoveOverlayVertical, but here is the compressed folder with the images.

I cannot reproduce that effect with your images.
Zip up the theme .msstyles and posted here so I can get a better look at it.

I have to tell you though, it's a work in progress.

I recolored the image at Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Indeterminate > MoveOverlay for a test and got 1st screenshot I can see the dark edge then I erased part of the edges 2nd screenshot you can see it changed, so there is a shadow on the ends of the image.

I remade the the whole Icon it's self. It's Styles Builder that puts it the shadow around it. I think it has to do with the image being somewhat transparent. Is there a certain color on Windows or Styles Builder that is transparent?
Here is the PSD and the image of before the image was put into the theme.
(Hoping you have Photoshop).

I took your PSD and added a black layer underneath your image so I can see what it looked like, then I reduced the width to 90% on your image layer saved it and imported it into your theme and tested it and to me it looks a little better, it could be that you had colored that image all the way to the edge. Here are the screenshots of what I did and what I got. Just for your information that is one of the hardest areas to get the look you want.

How would I not color it all the way to the edge?

Just not paint to the edges.
Or
Scale the layer (screenshots)
