PS CS2 Q (Well, two actually)

1. When playing around with photos under CS2, I'm typically zoomed out to fit the entire image onto the screen (1440x900 laptop screen). But when doing this, all the photos appear a bit artifacted/jaggy. When I zoom in or whatnot, it's all fine, so I assume it's a view setting.
Can anyone point me to where I need to go to change it, so it displays a nice smooth image?

2. I only tried it once or twice, but I was trying to put a "zoomed in" circle on an image. Imagine a screenshot of this webpage, with a bordered circle somewhere pointing to particular position, and what's in that image is magnified.
When trying in CS2, I used circular selection, copied it, and then enlarged it with transform (Might've been doubled or quadrupled).
Thing is, it heavily anti-aliased the enlargement, so everything became blurred together.
I want to get a nice gritty pixel zoom, as if you've zoomed in 400% or so. Can someone slap me into seeing how easy it is?

Thanks.

1 - View your image in it's native resolution. You're resizing and contorting the image to fit your laptop screen resolution. Nothing will fix this unless you view at sizes of 25/50/75% etc.

2 - Copy your selection, then paste it into a new canvas. Go to Image>Image Size. Enlarge it by whatever Pixel Dimensions you want, go to the drop down menu and select "Nearest Neighbour" sampling. Click OK and you'll have a better looking enlargement for your needs.

But I'm usually working at 33.3% or 50%. And why does Lightroom not show jaggies?
Best way to describe (Bit difficult for me to chuck up an image atm), is imagine a photo of a black line, running at about 50 degrees along the screen. Under LR, the line is smooth at whatever zoom level (Until you go over 100% of course). In PS, it's smooth at 100%, showing a bit of jaggies at 50%, and shows lots at 33.3%, 75%, etc.
It's a case of that it really helps to be able to see what changes to the photo when in full view. If I'm just being fussy, and this is how it is, then please, slap me.

2 - A huge thanks for that :) I went one step further, and found out that I can just copy my selection to a new layer, change the sampling in General Options to NN, and free transform. Bewdy! :D

It doesn't happen in lightroom because its lightroom not photoshop.

Its just how photoshop displays images, where it only gives good quality prievews at set resolutions, like orcone said 25/50/75 and 100%.

Fair enough.
Thanks for clearing that up :)
