Tip – How to find the exact centre of your image

February 14, 2008

Useful for alignment, and simple to do.

Starting with your new image, make a new layer

Fill that layer with any colour with the paintbucket tool

Open your rulers (View > Rulers)

Press Ctrl and T (the shortcut for free transform)

You’ll now see the centre of your image. Drag your rulers to the centre

Now cancel your free transform and delete that layer.

Voila.

  1. Or you could simply go to View > New guide and type in 50%, hit ok. Redo with horizontal guide checked.


  2. Thanks – that also works. I find that way takes slightly longer what with typing in the percentage but its more accurate.
