Finding middle/center of page - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

Is there a simple way to find the center of a page? I am working on an image which is not evenly sized, so my brain cannot do the math and find the center of the page to put a guide. Is there an easy way to do this? continued...

    Divide the length and width by two?

    actually, you'd want to divide the length by 2, then the width by 2.

    Here's a couple ways:

    View>New Guide make one at 50% Horizontal and one at 50% Vertical. You can make a nifty action out for this that will work with any doent if you first change your Units to Percent.

    Select All, Command-T and where the little hub appears will be the exact center. Guides will snap to it. You can use this method to find the center of anything.

    Control-click on your Rulers and select Percent. Shift-drag out l rulers to 50. (THEN you can divide by 2 if you want to.)

    Ed Hannigan & Doug Katz - Thank you! What easy, great tips. Now I just wish it worked this way in Illustrator. Pretty easy to find the center in Illustrator, but not as easy as this…
