Lesson 02 Adobe Photoshop CS Tutorial Lessons Training – Starting a New Project in Adobe Photoshop

hello friends welcome back to photoshop lessons Photoshop lesson number two in this lesson we would learn about how to create a new project now obviously all of us are very excited because this is our first project that we would ever create on Photoshop but again you know on this in this lesson I'm only going to show you how to actually create a project not really you know design a picture or an image so what we need to do to create a project is create a new project is go to file on the top on the menu bar and then click on new now there's a shortcut as well if you if you want to use your keyboard and not use your mouse you can press ctrl + n so if you see if you use ctrl + n you should be able to open a new project for people who are using a Mac PC I think the control is actually replaced by the command so if you press come command and the letter n you should be able to see a window like this now this window it looks very small but there's a lot of features that we can actually select here first of course is the name so you can give it any name maybe you know lesson 2 for example then we have something called preset now you must be thinking what the hell is preset again now preset can be custom which means you decide what you want or it could be you know one of the presets which is available as you can see there's a lot of there's a lot of features that are available if you wanted to draw an image which was an a4 size then you can select the a4 or an a3 or other sizes now these ones here NTSC DV etc are for video you know images that you're creating would be used eventually in videos these three here normally are sizes that I used in you know mobile devices so 640 by 480 800 by 600 or 1 0 to 4 into 7 6 8 not necessarily but mostly you know a lot of divine mobile devices now have these screen resolutions or otherwise you can actually select from one of the other options available here so what we would do is we would just you know normally select any of these maybe we could go in for 614 – 480 so the moment you select that you would see that the width height etc would change now like I explained you the preset you can select any one or if you want you can actually go to custom and put your own sizes now let's assume you wanted to design an image which you would use to print and put on your wall in that case you can actually write in the width and height exactly as you would want it on the wall so if I wanted a 200 by 200 square picture I can actually put that here and instead of pixels I can then actually select the unit from inches centimeters millimeters etc alright pixels is mostly for you know the screen resolution so if you want something that on the screen should look 200 by 200 then you need to select pixels if you're going in for something that you would print you can actually select inches or centimeters so maybe in this case because we are wanting it to do it for a wall you would select say centimeters so this would be you know if you convert the depictions into centimeters you would need to change it to 200 by 200 again yeah because 200 pixels was about 7 7 centimeters resolution now 72 pixels per inch or they also call it dpi is basically a standard in the market but there are some applications there are some you know websites or some some other uses where you would need to put more than 72 you know you could go up to you know 100 200 300 dpi pixels 4 inches or pixels per centimeter now dpi actually stands for dots per inch so you know dots per inch or pixels per inch sector so you would know exactly you know what quality you want obviously the higher the resolution the higher the image size so if the image size is say 91 MB as of now if you increase this to say 300 you can see the image size has actually become 1.5 6 GB for that sort of size so you need to be careful about that because if you are making images for use on a website you should actually be very careful about the sizes otherwise your website will take a lot of time to load next we have color mode now color mode has a lot of options here for example the grayscale yeah as the name suggests is when you want to do a website which is or an image which is a black and white image or grayscale image RGB stands for red green and blue and this is mostly used for you know normally people would use RGB as long as the image is going you know you're not going to use the image for printing even for printing some people still use RGB but a more preferred color mode is the CMYK this is because when you print an image you know it has to be very high quality otherwise the image will actually distort while printing the next option is background contents now if you want the background to be white you could put you can select white or if you want it to be a background as a transparent you could have a transparent background for our purposes you know we would just simply select white we wouldn't go for black or transparent as if not you would see there's an option call it once now when you click that arrow you would also see what kind of color profiles you need and the pixel aspect ratio now this is something that I would tell you later on in details but as of now you know like I said on you know before when we started the lesson if you're designing for you know use on videos you could actually select one of these or a color profile which could you know match one of the you know requirements that you know people give you sometimes your clients or people who are who you are designing the image for will tell you that you that they want an image which should be you know standard US or Japan or you know any other country compatible so you can select one of the color profiles from that now you could either click on okay and this would start a new project or you could actually save this preset if you're going to create this image again and again I mean the the the project that you create are mostly of the same sizes then you can actually save this preset and put in your name so you click preset save preset and put in your name that ways you won't have to do all the selections every time all you would need to do is just you know go to preset and select your name and it would load all the sizes now we're going to do the magic which is click on the ok button and there we are we have the new project ready now this is ready for us to start designing but we wouldn't immediately start designing here this lesson was mostly just to show you how to start a new project and what different options mean you would also see that the project would have the name on the top so it would have your name so if you're mulling multiple projects and if you're working on different images the way to differentiate them is to look at the top left side and you would see the name of your project in the next lesson I will teach you how to import photographs and probably you know work with the photographs in Photoshop if you like the videos don't forget to subscribe and I'll see you in the next lesson Chazz
