Is there a way to add the Phi Grid composition grid overlay?

Recommended Posts

Make your own template, either use just horizontal/vertical rulers or draw the grid lines on a layer which you can enable/disable on demand etc. - You can then save the whole drawn grid then with a transparent background (PNG or GIF) and reuse it by overlaying and scaling to images.

As I understand it, Golden spiral is Phi. 

 

"Phidias (500 BC - 432 BC), a Greek sculptor and mathematician, studied phi and applied it to the design of sculptures for the Parthenon. Euclid proved that the diagonals of the regular pentagon cut each other in "extreme and mean ratio", now more commonly known as the golden ratio."

 

If that is all Greek to you, and you want a simple grid, rather than the spiral, you will have to do as v_kyr suggests.
