I'm trying to build a art exhibition that fits in to a 5*5meter square. I have rectangular boxes that I want to set up in a pattern. So I want to make a grid thats made out of rectangles on my design. Is there a good way to do that in Photoshop? Thanks in advanced 😃

  • If this has anything to do to print, Indesign would likely be the better app for this. I found a couple example videos on it's grid making, auto-fit and gap adjusting: youtube.com/watch?v=Cue0Pmn1-2Qyoutube.com/watch?v=JogH4Mfc2nI – Joonas Nov 14 '19 at 7:56
  • Thanks. Watched both of those. But I'm trying to split one picture into a bunch a rectangles so its kind of the opposite. – Potato Nov 14 '19 at 17:11
  • Could you post some kind of sketch illustration what you are trying to achieve? And add a few more words. I can understand what you are saying in 2-3 different ways. – Wolff Nov 14 '19 at 17:11
  • Are you trying to split an image into smaller tiles which are to printed separately? (Illustrator would be good to use for this.) Or do you simply want to draw a grid on top of an image and print it? – Wolff Nov 14 '19 at 17:13
  • Right, in that case, depending on how fancy you want to get with the grid, maybe: posterazor.sourceforge.net can't remember if you can do squares. I can't remember if it has much control over that. It might've been built to only support the size of A4 sheet. In Photoshop, you should probably investigate the Slice tool and know that a rectangle slice can be divided with a few clicks. – Joonas Nov 14 '19 at 17:18

Try View > New Guide Layout from the menu.

  • Will that show up if a save the image? I want to make a layout guide so that I can follow the design box by box – Potato Nov 14 '19 at 7:54
  • @Potato Well, no. It'll create guides. But you can then draw lines on the guides which will appear when output. – Scott Nov 14 '19 at 18:49
