Thanks alot. I normally just hit and run these videos, but today I felt the need to log in to my account, like your video, and say thanks. Its small videos like these that have allowed me over many many many years to develop my skills one tiny bit at a time.
9 steps?! Haha!
Thank you. I have been having a really bad day and this was such a simple stupid issue that I could not get my head around. Thank you.
you're a wonderful guy !
Seems like Photoshop just sucks when it comes to guides. Really boggles the mind. I use the GuideGuide plugin it's a game changer.
Alt key doesn't draw cercle exactly from center, it takes center point from where you click and start draging the circle
Consistent tutorial, thanks! https://youtu.be/vdN9KloKRKc
Great way to do it. Thanks for the tutorial 😀
Woooooow! Thanks, I have been using guides wrongly for about 6 years until this video haha.
2019 – first method don't work anymore. New "feature" 😀
You know what? In Photoshop 7 (circa 2002), you could simply select the background layer and then drag and drop guides from the ruler to the center. The guides would simply snap at the center. WHY on earth did they remove this feature in later versions? It makes no sense to me!!!
I love that this video is 4 years old but still very "on point".
Also, showing the steps like you did at 2:42 is SUCH a time-saver! I can just go back and see them by clicking on the left arrow key. Super easy!
Thanks for inspiration! I will implement this into my tutorials from now on! 👍
very nice thank you
Nice method man, really useful
after the retarded 2019 changes i cannot free transform and center the guides in photoshop the easy way.
Also… the transform tool changes…my god… why? WHY?????????
Can't believe there isn't a key stroke to add center guides
Thank You! Helped me a lot!
Genius! Thanks : D
Or just set your Grid to 50% with 1 subdivision in Preferences and you can toggle your grid ON or OFF (cmd/cntrl+').
Then, if you want to use it for dragging a circle marquee, there's no need to create Guides. Just toggle your grid, select the marquee, and drag from the center. Toggle it off when you're done.
I think this is a great alternative to creating guides. You can leave it like this and if you need a tighter grid with more lines, just add more subdivisions and they will always be drawn from the center out.
Or get the free GuideGuide plugin.
