Photoshop Grid Tip

by on Aug.31, 2011, under Uncategorized

If you have ever wanted an easier way to produce a visible grid for a layer in Photoshop, the May/June issue of Layers Magazine provides an easy way to accomplish this that you may not have previously thought of. This tip requires vanishing point. All you have to do is create a new file with a transparent background or solid as desired. Go into vanishing point, set your grid up but then click ok while holding down the alt key (pc), this will place the grid onto your layer. After this, just select the lines and expand the selection, stroke the selection, or do whatever you want.

The image above is a result of getting carried away with this process (note the grid in the background).
