Is it possible to create a 9-Slice-Object within Photoshop? I haven't found that feature yet, and can't find any help through google. Doesn't Photoshop support it?

  • you mean separate your file into 3x3 squares? – Naty Mar 3 '15 at 11:18
  • @Naty yeah, exactly. And when I scale it the Corners stay sharp and dont get stretched – Marten Zander Mar 3 '15 at 11:20

No. Photoshop does not offer 9-point scaling.

There's a discussion related to this at Adobe's Feedback site: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/add_9_slice_scaling_in_photoshop_cs6

  • Yeah, we do not yet offer it. There are ways to accomplish this with linked smart objects and masks, but no out of the box support yet. I would love to talk to you folks on how you would use it, to understand how we can offer this in the future. – Divya Manian Mar 4 '15 at 18:26

2 options:
1. Download Guideguide and use it to create a 3*3 guides grid then use it however you want
2. Open illustrator, create a rectangle, go to:

object>path>split into grid

And then split your rectangle into 3*3, then you can move the vector to illustrator as a smart object, pixels or shape and use it as you want.

  • does Guidguide prevent my corners from being stretched? For me it looks like its only generating Guidelines – Marten Zander Mar 3 '15 at 11:35
  • can you add a picture? I don't understand what you mean by "corners are stretched" – Naty Mar 3 '15 at 11:46
