When drawing vector shapes in Photoshop I often find it annoying that the edges are quite blurry. Fortunately, there’s a very simple and little known trick that snaps vector shapes to pixels to avoid the ugly blurry edges.
You can clearly see the problem in the image below. The rounded rectangle shape on the left has blurry edges while the one on the right has nice clean edges that sit on the pixel grid.
To make your Photoshop vector shapes snap to pixels simply tick the “Snap to pixels” option in the shapes options box. This results in perfect vector shapes every time, no need to zoom in and edit the edges every time you draw a rounded rectangle.
