Speed Kills: advanced tips > CREATING REUSABLE DIAGONAL GUIDES

CREATING REUSABLE DIAGONAL GUIDES

If you've used Photoshop's rulers at all, you know that you have your choice of either a vertical or horizontal guide. That's not a bad thing, but there's one thing missing—a diagonal guide. Since Photoshop doesn't have one, here's a tip for making your own: Start by creating a new layer, then set your Foreground to R=74, G=132, B=255 (the color Photoshop uses for its built-in guides). Switch to the Line tool found in the Shapes tools, and on this new layer draw a diagonal line where you want your guide to appear (make sure you have Create Filled Region selected in the Options Bar). It's not a bad idea to copy that layer into a separate document and save it on your drive—so any time you need a diagonal line, you can just open that document and drag it right in.
