I noticed something strange with Photoshop...I have an object and I want to align it lets say at X position: 1280! I set exactly that number and then all of a sudden it becomes 1280.50 px! I know .5 pixel isn't that a problem but then .5 and so on it will become 1px and the 1px 1,5 etc. I want something to perfectly aligned with something else!

For example, I have to objects 355x355 and one 490x490 which are both perfect circles and want them to be center aligned! but then I see that there is a difference of 1 pixel between them! How can I fix this?

I have the same issue with Illustrator and in Preferences I have set the 1 px increment!

See the 1px difference?

Change the value 355 to 354 or 356 and you will find the perfect alignment. You always need to have even values. Byeenter image description here
