White Vignette ('Artistic' white edge) around all photos
My F700 has decided to become 'artistic' and surround each picture with a white vignette (soft-edged white frame around image). It's not a problem with the CCD sensor or the LCD display-- while taking a picture, the entire image area in the LCD looks normal-- it's just the save picture that has the vignette. . I think I've stumbled onto an artistic photo option-- Any ideas how to turn it off?

That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best procedure for taking a portrait won't be the best procedure for taking a landscape, for example. You probably won't want to take a picture of a grandfather the same way you'd take a picture of his granddaughter, either. That's just the technical side. You also have full control of the artistic side. You decide on the camera position, the time of day, vertical or horizontal orientation, etc. Sometimes you can reposition the subject, sometimes you can't (buildings, trees, and mountains are a little difficult to move). You decide what's in the picture and what's not. You decide whether the picture should be bright or dark. The camera is just a tool. You're the photographer.
this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)
There is nothing wrong with the camera. You're looking at the highlight view of your pictures. These are the bright areas in your picture that have been overexposed and thus all detail has been "blown-out." If you look at those areas in Photoshop, you should see that they are pure white.
Usually, the correct fix is to reduce exposure so as to preserve highlight detail. This runs the risk of losing shadow detail at the other end, but loss of detail in shadows is generally considered more acceptable than losing detail in highlights. Of course, sometimes you want to lose highlight details, just as sometimes you want your subject to go dark and show up only as a silhouette. That's an artistic decision, far beyond the scope of this question.
Getting back to the view on the back of the LCD, you can press up/down on the multiselector to get different views of the current picture. One shows you the histogram (which is another whole different topic), another shows you technical details about the photo, and one will show you the photo with nothing else. Pick the one you want. Play with them. Read the technical details.
Back in the old days, photographers carried notepads and pencils so they could jot down exactly this information. One of the advantages of digital photography is that this information is recorded automatically and stored with the images.
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
