Quick fixes for image positioning

Smart Guides and Smart Alignment are great new tools introduced in CS4 that can vastly improve the speed at which you work.

These tools decrease the need to constantly refer to grids and use ruler guides, leaving your workspace clutter-free. They also reduce the repetitive use of the Transform and Align palettes, enabling you to position, resize, align and rotate frames quickly and easily. The Smart Cursor pop-up menu displays dimensions and rotation information, and guides appear when you're drawing, moving, resizing and rotating objects, giving you instant information on positions. These then disappear when the object is de-selected.
