Where can I find the x / y coordinates for a layer in PS CS?


I need to find the x / y coordinates for each layer in my psd. I've searched through the help file and online, but I can't find the answer.

Hit Cmd + T to get the transform controls. The control bar up at the top will have the x and y values.

I don't think there's a way to do this in CC.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but you can show the coordinates for your cursor:

  • Go to Edit > Preferences

  • Select Units & Rulers and set Units > Rulers to 'Pixels'. Click 'OK'.

  • Go to the Window menu and click Info.

You will be able to see your mouse position in the Info panel.

You can also see the coordinates for a selected area:

Create a new selection with the marquee tool - don't release the mouse button yet!

Now hold spacebar, and the small popup now shows the top left coordinates of the selection. This does not work for existing selections, but at least it works for new selections.

tip: holding the spacebar while creating a selection allows you to move it.
