The Rule of Thirds is probably the most well-known composition rule in photography. In photography classes, the Rule of Thirds is one of the first things that beginner photographers learn.

A good way to start designing elements in an isometric view is to use a grid as a guide to project the elements. Good news, that's exactly what you'll learn how to make today in Photoshop. Open Photoshop and make a new file at any size you want. In this case, i will make mine at 1800 x 1200 px. Select the Line Tool (U). What Is a Photo Grid? A photo grid is a way to arrange your photos in a special grid frame that has a number of rows and columns. It is one type of the classic photo collages. That means you can add your photos into the grid and make them into one picture. What Is a Grid Template? A grid is a layout of intersecting lines that are used to keep your visual space organized by precise measurement or proportional spacing. Below you'll find a variety of grids that can be used in Photoshop, Illustrator, Procreate, and many other design programs.

Using the Rule of Thirds means that the subject isn’t centered in the image. By placing the subject off center you create interesting and more balanced shots.

The Photoshop grid is an useful tool that you can use to create layout designs for web and for print.

Imagine that you have a grid of 3×3 over your photo, both horizontally and vertically, so that you have 9 parts.

On this rule of thirds grid you have four important parts of the image, where the grid lines intersect. You can add your subject on the four intersections or along the lines.
