    mouse accuracy

    I would like to improve the accuracy of drawing on a zoomed-out image but need more accurate mouse info. Am I stuck with 1-pixel increments? I know the pointer doesn't reflect sub-pixel accuracy, but I figured I could use the small bit of extra mouse resolution between pixels. Thanks for any help.

    I'm pretty sure that you can't get better accuracy than 1 pixel.

    They are called 'mickeys'.

    Try here> http://www.missouri.edu/~finaidtk/mcenter.htm

    A tip: if you try to do any further googling, search for

    mouse mickeys pixel

    otherwise you get alot of other stuff.
