[SOLVED] Golden spiral guides
Hi all,

When I crop an image, I have a few guides to select from: none,
center, rule of thirds, golden sections.

I was wondering if there is any way I could have a golden spiral
guide.. Right now I use an image with the spiral as a semi transparent
layer to do my job, but it's not so convenient to resize, rotate, etc..

What would you suggest?

Thanks a lot in advance for your time!

RE: Golden spiral guides
No such thing built-in.

Your semi-transparent layer technique isn't bad. A technique using a Path would be better. It should be easy to generate a golden spiral over the current selection, for instance. Hmmm. Looks like a good idea for my next script-doodling.

Ah, I see.. Thanks, good to know.. So, unless somebody can suggest something else,
I'll stick with the semi-transparent layer thing..
