Layer question - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I created a layer which I made a grid with square inch boxes that I can use with photograph and print it out. This will be useful reference when I grid out architectural elements for art work. Is there a way I can save the one transparent layer with grid marks with a name so that I can apply it to any photograph image I want like one can with filters? Thanks for information! Susan...

    Hi Susan. If you just save the grid layer in a doent, then you can just drag the layer with the grid from the layer palette onto any other doent (holding down the shift key as you do this will ensure that it drops into place centred) Only down side is that you will only get a perfect match if the photographs are the same size as the original one that you created the grid for...

    Susan,

    If you simply drew lines on a transparent layer then you should be able to save that layer for the future. One way is:

    Make that particular layer active, Use the rectangular marquee to select all of the image, then do Edit>Copy. Make a new file (File>New) give it a name, select background transparent, click on OK. Then do Edit>Paste.

    I think that should do it for you.

    Have you tried making a new transparent doent and dragging the layer on to that? I don't have time to test right now, but it just might work. Might, I said. :)

    Beth's method should work...that's what I did with the challenge boy so I wouldn't have to redo the selection for other entries.

    Duh. I was doing this in a hurry and didn't even notice two others had already responded with the same suggestion. Maybe now that dinner is over it's time to call it a day!

    A simpler solution might be to select a portion of your grid layer, with
    no other layers visible, and creat a fill pattern from it (Edit/Define
    pattern). You can then fill a transparent layer on top of any other
    image with your grid regardless of the size of the image.
