Create a "Rule-of-Thirds" Grid

Don't use the grid view very often?  Then turn it into a rule-of-thirds grid.  In Photo-shop, press Command – K (PC: Ctrl-K) to open your Preferences.  Click on Guides, Grid & Slices from the list on the left and change the settings for the Grid section as follows: Gridline every 100 percent, Subdivisions 3, and click OK.  This creates  a grid that divides the image into thirds both horizontally and vertically.  When you turn on the grid by pressing Command – ' (PC: Ctrl – '(apostrophe)), a rule-of-thirds grid will be superimposed over the image.
