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.
