Hi there. Relatively new to this forum so apologies if I'm not posting this correctly. 

Is there an easy way to export or copy/paste a grid system from Illustrator to Photoshop? I've managed to paste them in as paths, but not sure if there's a quick way to make that a grid (vs a solid shape).

Thanks!

Sure - stroke your paths in Illustrator and then import them into PS as a smart object or shape - smart object is preferred. You can also stroke your paths in PS.

Hey thanks for the time, Melissa. Yeah got that, but there's no way to then make those into actual grids in PS once in, just have to drag a guide in over it one line at a time anyway, eh?

You have option from View menu in Photoshop: New Guide Layout. Is that what are you looking for?

Hey Bojan 🙂

Trying to take a custom grids we built in illustrator files, and copy/paste it in photoshop files of the same dimensions, and have it be an actual grid (vs outlined or stroked vector shape/path).

 

So far i've just been pasting it in as path, then dragging out one by one guide line to match manually. it's not a huge deal but wasting plenty of time doing that as we have a ton of these to make.
