Photoshop: is there any shortcut to create guide lines?


I am trying to create new horizontal and vertical guides lines in Photoshop using:

  1. View > New Guide > Vertical (this is for vertical guide line)
  2. View > New Guide > Horizontal (this is for horizontal guide line)

Is there a quicker way to create these?

Accepted Answer

Click and drag from the rulers, CTRL+R to hide and show. You can also use ALT to change from vertical to horizontal, or vice versa. Is that what you mean?

you know that you're able to make you own shortcut for it right?

Open Photoshop: Edit>Keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+K)

Then Keyboard shortcuts and menus window pops up.

then you'll have to find the "view" dropdown folder. (third from the buttom) then you'll scroll way down and find the line "New Guide..."(fifth from the buttom) and put in the shortcut you want for it.
