I'm using Photoshop CS6 and for some reason the grid is not aligned 1 pixel by 1 pixel on my 20 pixel by 20 pixel image. I've tried everything and it still doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

here are my settings:

empty canvas

Guides,grids and slices




p.s: I'm new to photoshop

"Photoshop CS6 portable" is not an Adobe product. – JohnB Jan 25 '14 at 10:37

I think I have the solution:

If you go to view -> show and remove the show grid, but choose the pixel grid, it should work (provided you have set the document to x number of pixels hight and width).
