Rule of Thirds!

Covered some basic Composition rules today!

Click here to watch! Click ‘On-Demand’ then the Nov 19 2009 video!

Also heres an easier way to set up the Rule of Thirds in Photoshop!

You can make a new action for this also –

So, new action, record

-> View
-> New Guide
-> In “Vertical” Box type 33% <enter>

-> View
-> New Guide
-> In “Vertical” Box type 66% <enter>

-> Repeat with the Horizontal Box.

-> Stop recording the Action.

Now you should have thirds setup on any document you use this action.

Hide/show them with “View > Extras” (You can make this as an action too)
