Changing Guides and Grid Color in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

Update! Click here (Grid, Guides, and Ruler Shortcuts in Photoshop CC) to discover my favorite tips related to Grids, Guides, and Rulers in Photoshop CC.

When using Guides, I prefer to change from the default Cyan color to something more calming. To do this, select Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices and either select a color from the drop down list, or, click in the color swatch to the right and choose any color you would like.

    Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices – in LR5 – actually 5.4?

    Am I missing something?

      This feature is in Photoshop, not Lightroom. : )
