Photoshop tip: If you’re using Adobe’s Photoshop there’s a simple way to get a grid overlaying your images. Go to Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices. Use the following:

Photoshop tip: Grid overlay

Press OK when you’re done. To display the grids press CTRL+’ (CMD+’ on Mac) or View > Show > Grid.
