Hi Marius,

Thank you so much! Although I read that values outside of the range can occur, I did not realize that they could be negative. 
Well I then changed to short which solved the border, but suddenly the very bright parts seemed to have some kind of overflow because they appeared to be zero then,
so I decided to just try with int and now it's working like a charm! =) 

Thank you a lot for the useful tool and great support,

Kind Regards,

 Hi David,
 It looks like an overflow of your pixel type. I think you store as a unsigned char, so with values in [0,255]. During interpolation, some value may get negative  (-1 for example), which is subsequently mapped to 255 (probably this is machine dependent as well).
 Can you try to write the output as a short, for example using the mhd file format, and see if the problem goes away?
 Regards, Marius

 Subject: [Elastix] elastix: strange contour border on output image
 I'm new to Elastix, and I use it for part of my student project,
 when trying it out i could successfully register images however the output image always has a strange border around the objects in the image.
 It doesn't matter what output format I choose, the border stays and I tried it out on 2 different computers one with Mac OS X 10.7.4 (with the binaries) and one with Ubuntu which I built with cmake.
 Any idea what the problem is, or how i can avoid getting this border? (I attached a picture i hope that's okay for the mailing list)
 Kind Regards,
