I've been thinking about this for years now. I really think Guide Sets would be an AMAZING feature in Photoshop.

The ability to lay down guides in a specific set, and then turn them on/off individually. Along with this would be the ability to choose the color of your guides in a set so that you could have multiple sets turned on and know which guides are related to what set.

For example, "set one" has blue guides, "set two" has pink guides, "set three" has green guides, and you can turn them on and off individually.

Awesome? Yes. I think so.

Totally agree with you.
In Illustrator guides can be set on and off, and they are linked to a layer.

The most likely feature would be guides with colors. Especially when working for responsive websites. You can make your grid color X and other guides color Y..

You can have guide sets now if you have Photoshop CS5 or better...

Or if you want per layer guides ...

@Paul Riggott - Thanks for the share! That's awesome to see that someone has built a script to allow this kind of functionality.

Nonetheless, to see it seamlessly integrated into photoshop, along with th eability to choose different colors would be amazing!
