    This has always been a pain in PS! CorelDraw had a better idea. Anyhow
    I've found this little trick too be useful. Try it.

    Start by pressing Ctrl+A selects whole image.
    Next: Press Ctrl+T, Brings up free transform
    bounding box, this box has a handle in the center
    of both sides and center handles on both top and
    Now make Photoshops Rulers visible Ctrl+R,
    drag out the a horizontal and vertical ruler guide
    to these handles and the mark center!

    There is also a crosshair circle "hub" in the exact center of an object
    when you do Ctrl-T.

    Old trick :) But it's always good to post these things. I've picked up old
    tricks on here before. Fer sure.

    Setting up business cards for instance when I want logo or text block
    I just select the background or the logo and do a control T and drag out
    Plus the guides will snap to the handles.
