To place a guide:

1 If the rulers are not visible, choose View > Rulers.

Note: For the most accurate readings, view the image at 100% magnification or use the Info palette.

2 Create a guide:

• (Photoshop) Choose View > New Guide. In the dialog box, select Horizontal or Vertical orientation, enter a position, and click OK.

• (ImageReady) Choose View > Create Guides. In the dialog box, specify guide options and click OK.

• Drag from the horizontal ruler to create a horizontal guide.

• Hold down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS), and drag from the vertical ruler to create a horizontal guide.

• Drag from the vertical ruler to create a vertical guide.

• Hold down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS), and drag from the horizontal ruler to create a vertical guide.

• (Photoshop) Hold down Shift and drag from the horizontal or vertical ruler to create a guide that snaps to the ruler ticks.

The pointer changes to a double-headed arrow when you drag a guide. To move a guide:

1 Select the move tool '.♦, or hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS) to activate the move tool. (This option does not work with the hand or slice tools.)

2 Position the pointer over the guide (the pointer turns into a double-headed arrow).

3 Move the guide:

• Change the guide from horizontal to vertical, or vice versa, by holding down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) as you click or drag the guide.

• (Photoshop) Align the guide with the ruler ticks by holding down Shift as you drag the guide. The guide will snap to the grid if the grid is visible and View > Snap To > Grid is selected.
