Next let's take a look at how we can customize the print layout by working with guides, and let's also talk about how we can quickly send our image to the printer. All right, well here we're going to open up the Guides panel. To do that, let's use the shortcut which we've learned previously, which allows us to open or close those panels on the right. Well, the Guides panel is sitting in position number 4. So press Command+4 or Control+4 in order to open up the Guides panel. Next, what I want to do is show all of the guides.
To do that, you can press Shift+Command+G on a Mac, or Shift+Control+G on Windows. This now shows us these guides which we can use. If we want the image to be a little bit higher here, I can click and drag that up, and then I can also click and drag up this bottom guide here in order position that up a little bit higher. In doing that, you can see how we can change where this image is located on the page. To hide all of the guides at once, press Shift+Command+G or Shift+Control+G. Next let's press that shortcut key again, so that we can learn a few other shortcuts, which will help us to show or hide these different elements.
When it comes to Page Bleed, you can press Shift+Command+J or Shift+Control+J. Margins and Gutters; Shift+Command+H or Shift+Control+H. Next we have Image Cells; that's Shift+Command+K or Shift+Control+K. And then next we have Dimensions, which is Shift+Command+U or Shift+Control+U. All right, well what about the Rulers? How can we show or hide those? Well I've saved those for last, because this shortcut is a little bit different. Rather than pressing Shift+Command or Shift+Control, what we're going to do is just press Command on a Mac, Control on Windows, and then the R key. That allows us to toggle the visibility of those guides on or off.
Now, that being said, there are a lot of shortcuts associated with these guides. You may want to memorize just a few which are relevant to you, or perhaps even most importantly, what you'll want to know how to do is to turn all of those guides on and off at once. So let me reiterate that shortcut. That's Shift+Command+G on a Mac, or Shift+Control+G on Windows. All right, well now that we've worked with guides, and we've changed the layout just a little bit, I'm ready to send this image to the printer. To do that quickly, we can click on the Print One button, or we can press a shortcut key combination to do that as well.
On a Mac, press Command+Option+P, on Windows, press Control+Alt+P, and here you can see it's sending that file to the printer in order to be printed.
