Grid Tool

I would like a tool like the align tool, but one that does more than a row at a time, an entire table. There are ways of aligning multiple layers, and then grouping them, and aligning them in rows, but a grid tool would be really awesome. Choose 9 layers, choose the move tool, and then to the right of the align options you see a button that says Grid. Click it and it automatically makes a 3 x 3 grid from the corner of the uppermost to the corner of the lowermost layer. Change the number of rows and grids and it automatically moves the layers around for you.

If someone chooses a number of layers that won't spread across a grid equally, like 7, you can choose an option to have empty spots at the end of the row or distribute them evenly. People would learn how it works quickly.

And I could use this in many ways. Especially with how often people need to mockup grid of pictures for websites. You could go to Windows Explorer or Finder, grab all your photos, drag them into the Photoshop Document, move the first pic to the upper left, the last one to the bottom right, click the Grid button, and you're done.
