New Photoshop GuideGuide panel eases grid-work

Check it out:

Dealing with grids in Photoshop is a pain.

With GuideGuide, it doesn’t have to be. Pixel accurate columns, rows, midpoints, and baselines can be created based on your document or marquee with the click of a button. Frequently used guide sets can be saved for repeat use. Grids can use multiple types of measurements. Best of all it’s free. Honestly, if you haven’t started downloading it by now, you’re probably a masochist. Weirdo…

  1. Guid guide is good, I like it.
    Okay. It’s 2012′ I even waited for a workday.

    1. Hi Brett-
      There is an option to turn off anti-alias for guides (and paths) in the Preferences (Performance > Advanced Settings > Anti-Alias Guides and Paths). Curious, would you ever need/want your guides (i.e. when using Canvas Rotate) to be anti-aliased?

  2. Never found Photoshop guides accurate enough for screen design.
    End up resorting to a bitmap layer with perfect columns laid above all other layers.
    Then again I don’t usually use PS for screen design.
