Smart Guides

Adobe added a new feature in Photoshop CS2 that allows you to easily align one layer with another. When you choose View > Show > Smart Guides, Photoshop will display pink guides to indicate how the active layer aligns with the surrounding layers (Figure 3.64). They pay attention to the top, bottom, left, right and center of each layer and extend the pink guides across all the layers that are aligned. The layers will also snap to these alignment points making it especially easy to get your layers in alignment. You can toggle the snapping behavior off or on by choosing View > Snap To > Layers.

Figure 3.64. The pink guides indicate where the active layer aligns with the other layers in the document.
