When I'm using Photoshop 7 I have to draw in either 25%, 50%, 100%, etc. If I do 16.5%, 33%, or 66%, the image is poor quality and very pixelated.
I'm wondering if there's a way to fix this, since sometimes 50% is too small, and 100% is too big.
No, that's just the way older versions of PS (prior to CS4, I believe) render the image.

This is the first time I've ever contemplated buying a new version :|
No offense, but I use PS:CS5X and I have the same issue. I think it's due to the following:
Let's say you have an image that is 100 pixels wide. At 100%, 1 pixel on screen represents 1 pixel of data in the image, so it' looks great.
If you view at a divisible of 2, you're OK, 50%, 25%, 12.%. Take 50%. PS merely throws away every pixel of info because you can't fit multiple colors into 1 pixel.
But when you view to, say, 66%, you're trying to fit 1.33 pixel's worth of info into 1 pixel, and this ends up looking horrible (but PS tries its best).
