Hi all,

I am attempting to make a reproduction of the Irish flag and I'm
having trouble splitting my original canvas into equal sections for
the flag's colors.

Can someone provide me with some tips on how to accomplish this?

Thank you

You can set guides wherever you want by entering a value into Vied>New
Guide. You could enter 33.3% and 66.6% for instance. Set View>Snap
To>Guides. Run appropriate rectangular marquees and fill with color.

There are other ways of course.

I often do this by editing the spacing of the grid. To do this, go to
edit-preferences-grids and guides. From there you can specify how the
grid is placed based on percentages of the image. It's better to use
guides if you only have 3 or 4 divisions to make, but if you need to
make 5+ equal divisions this might be easier as it will divide up the
entire image all at once. To make the grid appear, go to view-extras-
grid, or press CTRL+' on windows (probably apple+' on a mac).

Another option would be to start with an image 1/3 the final size,
fill with the first color (green), then use the canvas size command at
200% to duplicate the size with the second color as fill (white) and
once more at 150 % with the third color as fill (orange).
