The Set includes the following Photoshop extensions:
 - AV Bros. Guider Core
 - AV Bros. Guider Template
 - AV Bros. Array
 - AV Bros. Circumscriber.

First of all, you should know three basic facts about them:
 1. These extensions are superb timesavers!
 2. They indeed extend the capabilities of your Photoshop!
 3. They are as convenient and handy as Photoshop's built-in tools!

It is hard to believe how much easier these tools make your life with Photoshop! Thanks to these extensions, the performing such fundamental Photoshop operations as manipulating guides and distributing objects, has become super convenient and fast!
Please find below the description of what the Photoshop extensions of the AV Bros. Polaris set can do and review the complete List of Features of each of them:
AV Bros. Guider Core -
offers you the convenient and fast adding, moving and removing guides within your working document's boundary and/or selection.

Operating with guides is one of the fundamental operations when working with Photoshop and this extension not only saves tons of your time, but it also lets you perform some operations with guides that you couldn't do before!
List of features:
  • The capability to add either vertical and/or horizontal guides, or both vertical and horizontal guides at once, which bound either an entire document or a selection (if exists).
  • The capability to split with guides (vertical and/or horizontal) either an entire document or a selection (if exists) to the desired number of equal parts (accordingly vertical and/or horizontal).
  • The ability to simultaneously move either all vertical guides (to the left or to the right) and/or all horizontal guides (upward or downward) to the desired distance, which value can be specified in the following units: pixels, inches, millimeters, centimeters, points, percent or a ruler's current units.
  • The capability to remove existing guides using any of the following methods:

    • Remove all vertical guides.
    • Remove all horizontal guides.
    • Remove all guides (vertical and horizontal).
    • Remove only vertical guides that are either inside or outside the existing selection.
    • Remove only horizontal guides that are either inside or outside the existing selection.
    • Remove all guides (vertical and horizontal) that are either inside or outside the existing selection.
AV Bros. Guider Template -
allows you to perform the operation that you have never been able to do - to make your Photoshop document store a practically unlimited number of layouts of guides, rather than just a single layout, as Photoshop can do by default.

You won't believe how dramatically this feature increases efficiency of your work!
List of features:
  • The capability to add a practically unlimited number of layouts of guides (as templates) to a Photoshop document and store them in this document.
  • The capability to rename, reorder or delete the existing templates.
  • The ability to load the guides from any of stored templates either as a new layout of guides or in addition to the existing guides.
AV Bros. Array -
allows you to make a desired number of copies of the layer (or layers) and then, distribute these layers' copies within your working document's boundary or selection. The distribution can be with or without transformation and either randomly or in grid order. In many cases you had to avoid designs that required such distributions, due to their extreme laboriousness. Feel free now!
List of features:
  • The capability to make a number of copies* of the chosen layer (or layers) and then, distribute these layer(s) copies either randomly or in grid order and with or without transformation, within your working document's boundary or selection (if exists).

    * Up to 10,000 copies for random distribution and up to 100 columns and 100 rows for distribution in a grid order.
  • For the grid order distribution, the ability to specify (separately for columns and rows) a value of a jitter of layers copies' position.
  • Specifying the range of the rotation angles for the layers' copies.
  • The ability to enable a random flip (vertical and/or horizontal) option for layers' copies.
  • The capability to randomly scale (upsize and/or downsize) the layers' copies.
  • The capability to randomly adjust the color (hue, saturation and lightness values) of the layers' copies.
  • The ability to randomly adjust the opacity of the layers' copies.
  • Operating with the documents in the following color modes:

    • RGB (8, 16 and 32 bits/channel),
    • Grayscale (8, 16 and 32 bits/channel),
    • CMYK (8 and 16 bits/channel),
    • Lab (8 and 16 bits/channel).
AV Bros. Circumscriber -
circumscribes a circle (as a selection) around either two or three, specified by you, points and adds the guides (central and/or bounding) for this circle. Such a circumscribing would have been an exhausting process without this extension.
List of features:
  • The ability to circumscribe a circle (as the selection) around either two (2) or three (3) points, which are anchor points of the work path.
  • The ability to choose one of the following methods on how the created circular selection interacts with the existing selection:

    • New Selection. (If there is no selection in the active document.)
    • Add to the selection.
    • Subtract from the selection.
    • Intersect with the selection.
  • The ability to turn ON/OFF the Anti-aliasing option for the created circular selection.
  • The ability to add the central and/or bounding guides for the created circular selection.
