Step 1

Launch Photoshop and open the document to which you would like to add lines.

Step 2

Select the "Line" tool from the toolbox. You might have to hold and click the "Rectangle" tool to bring up a menu; then you can select the line tool.

Step 3

Choose the color of your line by clicking the front color at the bottom of the toolbar and selecting a color of your choice.

Step 4

Make sure "1 px" is the value in the "Weight:" box at the top of the page. This value determines the size of the line.

Step 5

Drag your cursor to the place in the document where you would like your horizontal line to start. Hold down the "Shift" button and click and hold your mouse; drag your cursor to the right to create the line. Let go of the mouse when the length of your line is satisfactory.
