I want to make a image to hold several icons, they are all the same size.

I was wondering if there is a way to see a division every 20px (my icon size), so I can manage the icons position easily.

Or is there an even better way to manage it?

You can add vertical and horizontal guidelines by going to View - New Guide... I guess that's very annoying.

But: There is an extension to Adobe Photoshop called Gridmaker2, which you could try (the file you need to download is this one)

Installation is easy, just put GridMaker.jsx in your Photoshop\Presets\Scripts directory and load the program, the script will be available in the File/Scripts menu.

+1 for grid lines. Is this for a web image that will be CSS-positioned? –  pattern86 Sep 6 '10 at 19:56

I found out I can just adjust the grid size:

Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grids & Slices

And activate Snap to Grid
