I recently installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 and the guides option is not working. I need help. Also, I am new at Photoshop so a step-by-step tutorial will be appreciated.

Here's a screenshot of the problem.

The guides option is not selectable because you have no guides created.

To create guides:

  • Your rulers are already activated, but if they weren't you'd press Ctrl + R to show them.
  • Click on the ruler and drag it out to wherever you want the guide to go.
  • Now go back to your dialog. Guides is no longer grayed out.

This is a pretty basic topic...In the future, try doing an Internet search on your problem first. I did a search for "create guides in photoshop" and got a lot of useful results.
