Hi

 

Is it possible to save out guides? Or a template? I'm currently using some with some reference images, but I want to disable those/delete them so I can add some new ones for another set of reference images. When I want to go back to the other references and guides, I'd like to be able to just load the old ones up. 🙂

 

Thanks

Okay. Thing is, once I have one set up, is there any way of saving it again? I can set up how many lines I'll need and then save it, but with my character's references, they'll need adjusting manually. So I'll set one at the top of the head, under the chin, at the hips etc. But then it'll need saving again after that. Is that possible to do?

Unfortunately, like most of the rest of Ps, there's isn't an option for 'update with current settings' option. You could also just skip guides entirely and simply use a helper layer with lines or masks on that layer.

If you have different layout with each new image then it is difficult at least to automate process using automation options in Photoshop. Different layout means different position of guides.
