Hiding guides in Photoshop

This may seem trivial to most, but it’s one that I’ve struggled with for a while… I’ve used Photoshop since version 2 or 3 (or maybe 4 – I’m not sure), and I’m quite comfortable with it, whether I’m touching up photos or creating simple logos like the one I created for the header image of this blog.

But if you are anything like me, that is, a programmer who taught himself to use Photoshop thanks to its intuitive user interface, you may have never used rulers and guide-lines. Then one day you have to hack some changes to some graphics done by actual designers…and they use fucking guide-lines all over the show. How to make them go away?!?

Simple… on the menu… View –> Show –> Guides

May this remove your headaches as well as it has removed mine. 🙂
