Adding border on border radius image background bleed through

I'm adding a black border on images with a blue background and while doing so, it appears to add an ever so noticeable background colored outline on the INSIDE of the border when doing so. Is there a way to get rid of this? The code I'm using is simple:

border-radius: 100%;
border: 3px solid rgb(0, 0, 0);

And you can see the background color edging in by adding a radius to any image, as an example:

enter image description here


There are several ways to avoid that annoying border-radius background bleed:

Method 1: Wrapper with Background Color

Put the <img> in a wrapper element, and add padding to the wrapper, with a background color that matches the <img>'s border. This way, any antialiasing that happens on the image will take into account the background color of the wrapper, rather than the background color of the page.

Method 2: Add Background Color to Image

Add a background color to your <img> that matches the border color. It'll use the <img>'s background color instead of the page background color to do the antialiasing.

Method 3: Use Padding Instead

Don't bother with a border. Add padding to your <img> equal to the border size you want, and add a background color in the border color you want. This gets you the same effect with the least amount of code.

Here's a JSFiddle with each of these methods:
