Snapping Guide lines to pixel edges AND changing Grid sizes

Have you noticed how the Guide lines can be placed anywhere within a pixel (you can see this if you zoom in to view individual pixels) even when you have Snap turned on?? Is there any way to make the Guide lines snap to pixel edges so as to include whole pixels instead a fraction of it??

Also, is it possible to change the dimensions of Grid boxes?

Thanks in advance.
Joe

ps. This is in Photoshop 7

ZOOM IN.. and this will go away.

"Also, is it possible to change the dimensions of Grid boxes?"

Edit preferences, and cycle to that option.

You can make the guide lines snap to the ruler. Turn on the ruler (ctrl + r), and make sure it is set to show pixels, and not some other measurement (you can right-click on the ruler to set the units). Then when you zoom in enough to see individual pixels, the ruler should display units for each pixel. Then when you are dragging a new guide, hold down the shift button and it will snap to individual units on the ruler, which will be each pixel.

To answer your second question (although I am not sure this is allowed in one post), you can change the settings for the grid by going to the Photoshop preferences and viewing the "Guides, Grids & Slices" menu (you can just hit ?+6 on a Mac, I'm not sure about PC, but ctrl+6 might work). There you can specifiy how often you want a gridline to appear and how many subdivisions you want as well as other things.
