    Hi,
    Within a larger ceramic tiling job I have to design a glass mosaic
    tile border. The tiles are 25mm square laid out in 2 rows with 2mm
    spacings all around each. The longest single length of border is 3
    metres.

    I've scanned each variation of tile and saved them as JPEGs
    Now I want to be able to drop these JPEGS into a lattice work of
    guidelines to try out prospective pattern variations.
    I started out with a grid in Photoshop and had no trouble dragging the
    6 horizontal guides into place. The vertical guides needed are so
    numerous that I'm trying to find a way to put them in automatically,
    rather than dragging each one manually.

    Can anyone please give me a clue as to how this can be done?
    I did a Google on "multiple guides" but it didn't come up with much.
    Maybe I'd be better off using a completely different method to do
    this. I also have Illustrator, if using this program would be more
    appropriate.
    TIA
