Using rulers, grids, and guides
The Edit workspace displays the rulers by default. You can choose a
ruler display in pixels, inches, or centimeters, change the color of the
rulers, or altogether hide them.
What is a grid?
A grid is a series of horizontal and vertical lines overlaying your image.
Grid lines can help you position image elements. You can display or
hide grids and set grid preferences for spacing and appearance. When
you display grids, they appear in all open image windows.
What are guides?
Guides are horizontal or vertical lines you position to overlay your
image. With the rulers displayed, you drag guides onto your image to
help with precision work, such as cropping, moving image elements,
selections, as well as text and brushstroke placement. While grids place
a series of horizontal and vertical lines at certain intervals, you place
guides at the locations you want.
You can use snapping to align your brushstrokes and image elements
precisely to the nearest grid line or guide. The snap influence controls
the distance, in pixels, that an element must be from a guide or grid
line in order to snap to it. An item’s center point snaps to a guide or
grid if the center point is the closest part of the item to a grid or guide.
