When using the Zoom function of Compiz, the zoomed-in pixels are anti-aliased (smoothed), which I guess is helpful for accessibility, however I want to actually see an accurate representation of the pixels (for graphic design purposes). Is there a way to disable the anti-alias feature?

Which zoom plugin are you using?

ccsm

Only 1 of them has options for linear filtering, so if you are using the Zoom Desktop plugin, disable Linear filter. You'll need CCSM for this sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager and possibly sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins-extra

ccms2

Also make sure Bicubic filter is not enabled

ccsm3

Note
