I'm trying to create a border around an area but the way I'm doing it it always is blurry.

What I do is create a rectangle selection then go to Select > Modify > Border > 1px > OK > Fill.

It looks like it's a blurry 3 px.

Is your rectangle selection starting with a feather? Make sure the "Feather" for your rectangle selection is "0px".

I've been caught by that before but I triple checked it to make sure. – 1.21 gigawatts Feb 19 '12 at 13:29
