It helps.

I would be much happier if I could have some kind of feedback.
E.g.: a box showing the position of the layer into the canvas.

I have to position a huge (>100) number of (partially overlapping) layers on a 
regular grid.
The Layers come from a single huge image that has been cut and I want to 
Relying on the image itself for positioning leads to errord that sum up :(
I know the single layers were taken 1553x1038 pixel apart 
(horizontalxvertical), so, having the offset, it would be trivial to position 
them precisely.

Any further idea??
