Grids and Guides

Create a new document by choosing File, New. Open an existing image file by choosing File, Open. When the canvas appears and you are ready to work, you might like the benefit of having a grid or guidelines to help align elements in your composition. Show your document's grid by choosing View, Show, Grid. A grid will appear over your image, but it will not print or export with your image (see Figure 2.11). The grid is only for display, measurement, and alignment purposes.
