Turning Off the Pixel Grid in Photoshop

While editing an image in Adobe Photoshop recently, I zoomed far enough in that white lines appeared. These lines create a pixel grid which simply outlines the small dots so you can see exactly what you’re doing.

Grids can be incredibly helpful to line-up your work and keep things in order. However, the pixel grid may be distracting and get in the way. In my case, I wanted to get a better look at the image’s small details as a whole.

In order to turn the pixel grid off, go to the View menu, then Show and finally uncheck the Pixel Grid option.

It’s the small details that count and I found that turning the grid off was easier to see the tiny changes. Adobe has packed a ton of features into Photoshop and the pixel grid is another one that has its time and place.
