Getting “Photoshop-like” Guides in Lightroom

This is a quick, handy-little feature that was added in a Lightroom CC update and if you didn’t know it was there, you might miss it altogether. Check out the short video below. 🙂

Hope you found that helpful

Hey, since I know you’re in to photography…
I want to invite you to check out my new online course that just came out last week, it’s called “10 Things Every Photographer Needs to Know On Their Camera” – check out the official trailer below.

Here’s the link if you want to watch the class right now.

    Wow! What an amazingly useless feature. It’s not as though you have 4 grid lines so they might be useful for showing your photo sans the part under a mat, since Adobe only gave us 2 grids. And there are still no grids in the print module so you can see where the middle of a project is for making things like cards. 10 years with Lightroom and still no grids like Photoshop. Why do they call it Adobe Photoshop Lightroom?

      Not real elegant, is it.

      You may know this, but for others’ benefit in Print module:

      View | Guides | Dimensions
      View | Show Guides

      That will allow your cursor position do be reflected in your cell/paper placement as you move an image around to fit the “hole” of the cell. It’s not a grid but you can see where it is by the numbers on the rulers around the edge.
