Hi,
Within a larger ceramic tiling job I have to design a glass mosaic tile border. The tiles are 25mm square laid out in 2 rows with 2mm spacings all around each. The longest single length of border is 3 metres.

I’ve scanned each variation of tile and saved them as JPEGs Now I want to be able to drop these JPEGS into a lattice work of guidelines to try out prospective pattern variations.
I started out with a grid in Photoshop and had no trouble dragging the 6 horizontal guides into place. The vertical guides needed are so numerous that I’m trying to find a way to put them in automatically, rather than dragging each one manually.

Can anyone please give me a clue as to how this can be done? I did a Google on "multiple guides" but it didn’t come up with much. Maybe I’d be better off using a completely different method to do this. I also have Illustrator, if using this program would be more appropriate.
TIA

Of course, why didn’t I think to ask?
