Is it possible, to disable appearance of pixel grid, when selecting pixels (e.g. use of region selection, magic wand, lasso and other selection tools)? I'm work with pixel art, and I always turn this grid to off, and when want to move region of pixels, that grid appears, which not very comfortable (especially when need to select color surrounded with almost same looking colors. That grid is too contrast, and makes problem with recognizing color that I need).
I use Ctrl+H when I am using the patch tool. First I use the patch tool to say darken down an area that is bright by finding an area on the brighter part and patching it to a darker area. I then have marching ants on my Image My next step is Ctrl+H... I then go to Edit Fade patch selection with this you can then use the slider to blend the selection that you applied that was dark into the area that is lighter. Or visa versa.
