Hi

I use File > Place quite a bit in Photoshop and often have a problem
positioning it exactly where I need it.
Is there a way to make small adjustments to the location without the mouse just
before or after the Place happens?

Thanks

Usually right after you've placed your image it is still selected. (if extras is switched on in View you see selection box)

You can then use the cursor keys to move it about. If you need small adjustments just zoom in and use the cursor keys.

Or you can you can change the x/y co-ordinates in the options panel for super fine alterations to placement. (make sure options is selected from the window task bar (top))
