Photoshop/ImageReady help

Post by ChrisNM » August 4th, 2010, 3:40 pm

Using CS2....

I'm working on a "small" project and can't seem to figure out how to get ImageReady or Photoshop to keep the guidelines (vert and horiz) that I've dragged for placement for aligning text/images after saving the file. I can't quite seem to word the search correctly via google either, which is a little frustrating. What I want to basically be able to do is create a standard template, within that template I know specifically where I want image and text place- / alignment. However, when I save the template and then re-open it the guides I've placed are no longer present. Show Guides is turned on, as I can see the guides when I drag them into place, their placement just doesn't get saved when the template is opened later for additional editing.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I'd really like to know too.

Have you tried writing an action?

Chris - That seems very odd, Guides should not disappear. Are you saving as a PSD or another format? Some formats don't support guides.

I've not tried saving as PSD. The template is the border I use around my images. The file is saved as an optimized JPG. Now that you mention it, that may be why I'm losing the guides when I come back at a later date for more photo work.

EDIT: I took the jpg template, guided it the way I needed and then saved as a psd....guides stayed. Now I just go Save As Optimized and can convert to jpg. Can't believe I didn't think to save in PSD. :roll:
