Create lines in a separate layer instead.
That doesn't make any difference. I created a new layer, added a new guide, and the only way to change guide color is through Preferences -- which changes all the guide colors, no matter which layer.
Or am I missing something?
Thanks, John! It seems strange that Photoshop doesn't allow the different colors for guides, when most of their other programs do. Maybe somebody should give them a nudge.....

Inconsistency between or among applications in the artificial "suites" should come as no surprise.
The "suite" concept is a fabrication of Adobe marketing and bean-counting types. The engineering teams are totally independent of each other, they are not only in different buildings but in different cities and states of the American Union, even in different countries.
The fact that they have little if any communication among them is highlighted by requests occasionally made in these forums by top Adobe engineers to let the other teams know when there are problems in one application that impact our workflow in another one.
