Most image editing programs will paste copied images centered on whatever is open, which is a requirement to use this effectively.

The grid has a center point cross of white, which denotes 0,0, the reds are then odds and greens are the evens, incrementing by 10 up to the final red outline at 90.

As a reminder, the first value is left-right, left being negative, and the second value is up-down, up being negative.

Addendum: Keep values below 100 in any direction or they risk being hidden.

*EDIT: grid spacing was off by 1 or 10%

Nice idea but most gfx editors come with a measure or selection tool that can quickly count the pixels for you.

Well ideally it would, I already asked for such a thing where you could select dots on the grid and have it spit out a list of coordinates for you automagically... I don't know if it was taken seriously, so here's another option.

The point is to select all the locations in one go then referring to the image you know where they are as you write, without having to go back and forth a dozen times. You just turn off or delete the original layer.
