You never know what you're going to find at RetouchPRO. I stumbled on this thread earlier tonight (http://retouchpro.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8285
) and read about some free plugins available for download.
Here's the link to the site: http://www.users.cloud9.net/%7egparet/photoshop/
Of the plugins available I downloaded and installed Grids
. No problems with installation and easy to use. Important:
This one shows up under the Select
menu. I used it to create the grid lines (top layer) of the attached images.
If you have a black and white checkboard pattern or an action** to create one, try creating B&W checkerboard layer masks between layers and put a layer of grid lines at the top of the layer stack. That's what I did with the last two attachments.
** I just wrote an action that creates a BW checkerboard. It isn't ready for prime time yet, but if you'd to test fly it "as is," send me e-mail via my profile (click on my name at the top of this post) and I'll reply with copy attached to the e-mail.
