    Hello, my question is, is there a way to get the offset information of a smaller layer inside a larger image, by that i mean to get the X/Y coordinates of the top left most pixel of the smaller layer in its relation to the larger image.

    Programmatically, I'm unsure if there is a good way of going about that. However, if you hover your cursor over that pixel (zoom up first to 800%), the x/y coordinates of your cursor will show up in the bottom lefthand corner of the image window.

    Another option - click and drag new guides from the vertical/horizontal rulers. While aligning them with the left and top edges of the small layer, check the bottom lefthand corner of the image window for the x/y coordinates.

    haha thanks i didnt think to use the guides, bit of a work around but at least it works. maybe it could be a development option to include the information on screen someway, maybe at the bottom.

    Yeah, the only method I know of is the guides which Sydney mentioned. But that is a really great suggestion, you should submit it to the devs.
