Putting a grid on a reference image

Some people use grids on their reference images to help with of their art. I didn't find a tutorial on this, so I made up a quick one for ArtRage Studio / ArtRage Studio Pro.

I will be using the grid script called grid.arscript from AndyRage (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums...highlight=grid). Make sure you download and save the scrip in a place you can find.
