So now we are getting into the ‘Create a Project’ section of this course, in the previous 23 episodes... I introduced you to Photoshop, showcased some handy tips and we practised some essential tools and techniques.

Now its time to take all that we have learnt and create a project from scratch.

In this video we are going to begin our project by setting up a document in Adobe Photoshop for our book cover design ready for print.

I will be taking you through some of the details you need consider as we set up a new document.

Enjoy.

 

 

TOPICS COVERED:

 

00:02:03 - Setup a document for print

00:02:52 - Setup guides
