Is there a way to quickly define a baseline grid on photoshop using the guides tool? For example, if I want to create a 24px vertical rhythm, can I do this quickly on PS?

Use the Grid, Luke...

Go to Preferences > Guides, Grid and Slices and set up the grid you want. Show/hide the grid with Ctl-', and ensure View > Snap To > Grid is checked.

Unlike Illustrator and InDesign, you can't make a distinct baseline grid. The above should be enough for most purposes, though.

You can make a baseline and horizontal grid using GuideGuide –  citelao Sep 4 '11 at 2:01
    
Very nice. I hadn't come across GuideGuide before. –  Alan Gilbertson Sep 4 '11 at 7:24
