Correct: Aliased: each pixel is either light blue or dark blue

Incorrect: Anti-aliased: each pixel is a blend of blues

If you are unsure how to do this please follow these 3 steps to ensure your file is aliased 

 

1. preserve hard edges.
Photoshop Preferences: General: Image interpolation > preserve hard edges
This means if you resize an image it does not blur between pixels it keeps their color value integrity

2. anti alias
Click off ‘anti alias pixels’ on the tool bar preferences
 
photosp
 
 
3. individual pixels
Then use the pencil tool to colour individual pixels accurately

another tip is to use ‘threshold’ to break a photograph or image into different colours. the image on the right has been made in a similar way to this. please follow these instructions to use thresholds
