Grid lines
Ok this has been asked 100's of times I
would guess but I sure cant find it anywhere Undecided

I would like to make a 16 x 16 pixel box and I would
like to have line ver/hor every pixel to help me place
my section pictures with.

How would I go about set this up ... please be kind ...
I am slow at getting the point and the mind has never
done this type of stuff before Blush

A 16 pix x 16 pix canvas is very small, What size pictures are you going to place in it, or is it just part of a larger image? The more and clearer the description, the more likely you will get a meaningful answer.

You can set up a grid for any image using Image menu -> configure grid. If you want a 1 pixel spacing use width and height = 1. Change the line style and colour if required.

This is not part of the image although if you save as an .xcf file the settings are retained.

You might also want to check in the View menu that 'show grid' is turned on also maybe snap to grid.

Just had a look at your previous post and did not understand that either Wink
