My photoshop is having problems.. I don't know why, but I kind of hate it. It looks all pixel like, but when I zoom in its okay. THEN my zoom in tool is all funky, when I zoom in I dont like I normally do. The zoom in tool selects things (when I do) and then goes to that selection up close! I need help! (its okay when I use it on another program I guess you can say, but the view is weird. Its not the brush.
It would be nice if you posted a screen-shot.
I will assume that you are not sitting on a high resolution screen. And sometimes when the canvas is zoomed out, some pixels have to dissappear. Say that you have a one pixel straight line and zommes out to 0.5x, that line still have to be 1 pixel wide. If you know what I mean.
I'm not sure I understood your question.
