    Can that other user turn the OFF?

     

    What format are you doing a Save_As, and what version of PS are you both using?

     

    Good luck,

    That's because you are hiding the guides, not clearing (deleting) them.

     

    You can hide guides by unchecking them in View > Show > Guides, but if the user has that command checked, they will see the guides.

     

    They can hide the guides, but if you do not want guides to be in the file that you send,make a copy and use the View > Clear Guides command.

    There's other ways to send files. Try out mediafire.com

     

    You upload your files and email the download link. No problems with email limitations on file attachments and you normally get 2 GB of free space.

    Is it important that it be in native Photoshop format? Can you save a copy as a jpeg, tiff, or png?

     

    Psd is important only if those getting it are expected to edit it as well and that they have Photoshop. If it is to be placed in a page layout program or printed, tiff is a good format to work with, png and jpeg are for the web basically.

    Hard for me to say what transpired at your end. I even forget what switches I flip in this program. I remember dimly getting a file with guides in them. Perhaps the author thought that hiding them on his side would hide them when I opened the file.

     

    Anyway perhaps this will help avoid that issue in the future:

     

    Even if the guides are hidden, if View > Clear Guides is active, you have them. If the command is grayed out, there are no guides to clear, and you can send them on. Hope that helps somewhat.
