To quickly set guides in the center of any size and/or resolution Photoshop document, set the Preferences for  Units & Rulers to Percentage, show your Rulers (Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + R), and record an action dragging guides to the 50%  marks. (You can also select View > New Guide to place the guide at the 50% mark instead of dragging it out from the rulers.) Next time you need guides, simply play the action. For more information about creating actions, please see:
