Place an image at a fixed position

Place an image at a fixed position

Place an image at a fixed position

I'm trying to create a gif animation using 40 png background transparent images.
So I'm using one image as a "parent" to hold the other images.
The problem is, I want them to be placed at a fixed position.
But whenever I dragged them in, the position is not correct.

What I'm doing now is drawing a border and using that to determine a fixed position. It works, but it's taking up too much time. Any faster way?
Thanks for any help.

RE: Place an image at a fixed position

Hi there.

To move an image to an exact spot do the following:

- click on the layer
- Ctrl + T (Free Transform)
- then you must have the options window open
- the you will see a little box 3 dots by 3 dots (click on the  top left one)
- then you will see X and Y coordinate boxes next to that (simply enter in the postiion)
- Click the checkmark on the far right of the options window

Another thing you could do is record all those steps I mentioned as an action and set a key command then when you drag a layer in simple do the key command and it will move the image over for you.

Hope this helps!
