If you’ve never noticed the pixel grid in Photoshop, maybe you haven’t zoomed in close enough. The pixel grid appears as a white grid over your image when you are zoomed in at 600% or higher, and it enables you to make precision edits at the pixel level. However, if you’re like many users, you may find this feature useless and wish to turn it off. To do so, choose View > Show > Pixel Grid to deselect the option, and Photoshop will disable the feature.
