    I want to move a layer contents and use for this the Move Tools.
    It works in general but not on pixel level. Sometimes I cannot position the layer
    image at the pixel position I want. It "jumps" either approx 5 pixel to the top or bottom
    if I try to move it just one pixel. Why ?

    It seems to me that there is a kind of snap-to-grid option enabled.
    How do I disable this ?

  2. Untick snap option (under 'view' menu, I think in PS CS).

    Because it snaps to the edge or center of the image.

    There are two ways to disable this. Either hold down the CONTROL key on
    your keyboard when you move, or use the arrow keys on your keyboard to
    move the layer one pixel at a time.

    A good general rule of Photoshop is that just about every tool in the
    Toolbar will do something different if you hold down the CONTROL key,
    and most keys will also do something different when you hold down SHIFT,
    ALT, or both. Whenever you have trouble because a tool is doing
    something you don't want, or doing something you think it shouldn't, try
    seeing what happens if you use it while you hold down CONTROL, SHIFT,
    ALT, or SHIFT+ALT.

    With the Move tool you can move images in one pixel increments using the
    arrow keys. Shift-click makes it ten pixel increments.

    Use the arrow keys to "bump" it one pixel at a time.
