Often times when I receive someone else’s Photoshop file that has guides in it, I find the guides are not snapped to the edge of the pixel. To avoid this, simply hold the Shift key when you drag a guide onto the canvas. Doing so will cause the guide to snap to each pixel. If you didn’t know, you can drag guides by pulling them from the Ruler.

Keep in mind that this only works if snapping is enabled…
thanks! I hate when I don’t drop the guides correctly and then keep on selecting what I don’t want.
It also only works if your Ruler is set to pixels in the preferences.
