An alternative quick way in Photoshop is to go to the crop tool - in the options bar set it to Golden ratio
You may need to move the crop handles to make the grid appear - no worries just wiggle them and put them back to the original position (you are not going to crop)
Then drag a guide from the ruler over the golden ratio crop grid
You can now leave the crop tool without cropping - but the guidelines will be in the ratio you require.
2 problems though:
1 - It draws the spiral upside down and I cannot find a way to flip it
2 - It draws the spiral out of proportion.
See attached screenshot
Use Shift+O to cycle the orientation of the overlay and the direction of the spiral - so there are 8 variations to cycle through (4 of which are correctly drawn)
Trevor, why is it that when I am scrolling through various threads the ones that make me bust out laughing are almost always yours? This is hysterical!
Thanks Dave - superb stuff.
Truly - the Trump one made me literally almost fall off the chair here
It can be erratic:
Download ScriphsonTrees panel which can run .jsx scripts
and then downloaded this Goldencrop jsx script and put it in Adobe scripts folder.
Once run and then cancel is selected in crop mode- one can go back to layers and select and deselect the ones you want.
The benefit is of seeing multiple colour coded grids for the same photo/document.
