Guides are horizontal or vertical lines, which can help us with aligning elements inside a project. To create a guideline, enable Rulers first (View - Rulers or Ctrl+R). You can edit guides using Move tool only. Now you can click on horizontal ruler an drag down a new guide from it. Any guide can be moved also using Move tool. In order to remove a guide, click on it and drag it back onto horizontal ruler. You can work with vertical guides in the same way, using the vertical ruler.

When you save your project as PSD, rulers are included into PSD file and will be available after opening that file in Adobe Photoshop or other programs with PSD support.
