Snap and Snap To Guides are imprecisely snapping

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Robert Montgomery, Feb 24, 2010.

  1. In P. C.S.3 (Mac), how can I get selections to snap precisely to the guides?

    I have View > Snap checked, and also View > Snap To > Guides checked,
    and yet the guides and selection rectangles aren't precisely aligned to
    the edges of rectangular images and guides.

  2. Thanks, Alan.

    I found the answer: View > Show > Grid!

    I wish I had discovered this years ago; it would have saved much time
    and frustration.

    The short-cut for that is Control H (on a PC)...turns the grid on and
    back off.
