My first question would be why do need your document to be another pixel aspect ratio other than square pixels?
To make your pencil tool only draw 1pixel, follow these steps:
- In your pencil tool, click on the Brush Preset picker on top menubar
- In the default Presets, scroll down and you'll see a 'Star 14px' brush
- Choose that, edit the size to 1px
- Draw now
- Your pencil tool will give you exactly 1px fill

Dear Shudarshan sir, again i am having problem,
when i set the PIXEL ASPECT RATIO to 0.5, it again start taking 2 pixel, what to do next?
Thank u for ur considerstion Sudarshan bhae! Shukrya!
Kaise ho, Salman bhai... Kidhar se ho aap? Good to see a hindi speaking user on this forum!
To the others, I meant 'How are you, Salman? Where are you from?"!
Pixel aspect ratio at a factor of 0.5 means that your image ratio is 2:1. All images are made up of square pixels which is 1:1 ratio.
When you make it 0.5, you're effectively affecting the width of the image to be twice the height (pixel ratio). This means that when you paint with 1px brush/ pencil, your height will be 1px but width will be 2px - I presume this is what happened when you made your Pixel aspect ratio to 0.5
Unfortunately, there is no workaround in this scenario. 1px is the lowest possible you can go with a brush tool as the data within PS needs to be in minimum multiples of 1px. With a pixel aspect ratio of 0.5, a 1px brush tool will always give you 1px high by 2px wide fill.
But for starters, why are you working with various different pixel aspect ratios?
Conroy, excellent! I can't believe how stupid I can be to oversee the roundness factor and angle! Maybe this is what happens when you're stuck in your den for 4 days straight with no direct sunight!
No, you're not stupid! I don't know why angle 45 works but, when combined with roundness 0 (these values need not be exact) and a 1 pixel square tip, it seems to do the trick at various aspect ratios, tall and wide.
Sudarshan bhae i am from Karachi, Fourm pe urdu likhna thek nahe hoga, Gooron ki hat jaye gi, yr aap to anth aadmi ho photoshop k! i am very pleased,
basicaly i am an amature weaving designer. doing it easy for u,if u see a piece of cloth closely, u'll see thin threads horizontally and verticaly, and some cloth with more threads verticaly and lesser threads horizontally,
suppose i am making a design(more threads vertically) i have to see a design in round shap but originally it contains more thread(pixel) vertically, to see and edit in round shape i am doing this , thre are specific softwares for this but photoshop has everything so i am tryiing to utilise it,
my english is nt very good, i hope u would understand....
Mr Corny thanks alot, ur spreading education to all, Thankyou Dude! i have done it,
