Before you start;
You must have your images open,
download mine here, (ok its seems "blank", but
it contains the selection, PsP6 user, try this
you must display the rulers before you can create a guide. Choose View -
Rulers to make the rulers visible.
To create a guide:
Choose View - Guides to make the guides visible.
Click the left mouse button and keep it pressed in while dragging from
either ruler. Drag from the ruler across the top of the image window to
create a horizontal guide; drag from the ruler extending down the left
side of the window to create a vertical guide.
See images; 1 guidehandle, 2 guide.
Release the mouse button when the guide is at the desired position.
After you have created a guide, you can move it, change its colour, or
delete it. However, before editing it, you must make the ruler visible
because the ruler displays the guide handle. If you hide the ruler after
creating or editing guides, the guides remain visible. To hide the guides,
choose View - Guides.
Move, edit or delete a Guide
There are two ways to move a guide. You can:
- Drag it by the guide handle on the ruler, or double-click the guide
handle (or rightclick) to open the Guide Properties dialog box. Type a new
pixel in the Guide Position box. The position is the number of horizontal
or vertical pixels from the upper left corner of the image.
You can also change the Colour of a Guide,
just click in the Colour box or right-click to open the Recent Colours
If you want to delete a guide, you can;
- Drag the guide handle off the image window, or select the Delete Guide
