I generally use photoshop for compositing images into a single believable work of art. One of my primary considerations is light and depth of field. When compositing the latter is of great importance and often tough to layout. I generally use rulers to provide dof markers keeping foreground middle ground and background of planes as close a s possible. I was thinking it would be great if I could determine ruler color before bringing them into the image. I.E. foreground focus area determined by blue, middle DOF red and background DOF green. This way when bringing an image in I have a reference point to how deep the focus should be and where it picks up. I suppose I could to this with a blank layer and different color lines but I thought a multiple color ruler option would be awesome and simple to implement

The normal Photoshop rulers are along side the image, not on the image.
What are you referring to "bringing them into the image"?
