Pieces are normally centered, but if you have odd-sized pieces on an even-sized space, or vice versa, 100% alignment may not be possible. Also, centering works best for pieces with nothing beyond the image of the piece itself. Some piece sets, such as Alfaerie, make all piece images a fixed size by adding extra space around most images. If the image of the piece is not properly centered in an image with extra space on the sides, it will not look properly centered on the board.
