If you use guides in Photoshop, you know they can help you position and align the elements of the photo accurately. But do you miss these guides in Lightroom? If you do, it’s good to know Lightroom offers them, too. This option is kinda “buried” in the menu, and you may easily miss if you don’t know it’s there. This quick and easy tutorial by Scott Kelby will help you find it and use Guides in Lightroom CC.
When you open an image you want to edit, go to View > Loupe Overlay and choose “Guides”. They will appear on the photo, and you can move them by holding the Control key on PC (for Mac users, it’s the Command key). As you hold the Ctrl/Cmd key, you can move the guides individually. If you click on their intersection and start moving the lines from there, you can move them as a group.
Kelby demonstrates this feature in Lightroom CC, but if you use Lightroom 5 (like I do), you’ll be happy to know that the guides exist there as well.
