How do I turn off anti-aliasing while drawing shapes in Photoshop?


Question

Whenever I create a square shape at 100% zoom, I get perfectly sharp edges. However, once I zoom in at any amount, drawing a perfect square (without anti-aliasing) is very difficult. Is there a way I can turn this off?

Firstly you set the shape mode to "fill pixels", you can't turn AA off with shape layers:

Secondly you need to uncheck the "Anti-alias" checkbox (this only appears after you do the first step)

Here I am zoomed in to 800%. The rectangle on the right was drawn with AA on, the rectangle on the left was drawn with AA off.
