I'd like to erase some single pixels of this image (the black ones):

enter image description here

But once I use the erase tool, I end up with somethings like this..

..which is not a pixel and its not "square", but a circle (even if I use a custom settings, in the top bar).

How can I achieve this using Adobe Illustrator CS6?

  • hit A
  • click each black box and hit DEL
