A quick Photoshop tutorial on how to Open, Resize, and Save.
Everyone knows Adobe Photoshop i s the leading editing software for any type of still image you may want to edit or create. The only problem with photoshop is that getting started isn’t the easiest task. There are so many tools to learn and so many rules to follow for it to work, but once you figure those rules and tools out photoshop can help you create an entirely new world. A world straight from your imagination.
So first things first, This is just a simple article on how to open, resize and save your images. So at first you need to open up photoshop, once that’s done you can start drawing or you can open up an image.
To open an image you must click on the “File” button near the top left corner.
This will open a drop down menu which gives you many options. You can create a new template, or open an existing file. In this case we’re going to open an existing image in order to resize it. So you would need to click on the option that says “Open”
Then it will open up the directories to your hard drives. All you need to do is locate the file you would like to use and open it up.
Now the image I’m using is 1920 x 1080 which is the resolution for HD but a lot of websites still don’t allow this image size, and some computers still can’t handle this. In this case it might be better to resize the image to a smaller file size.
The next step would be clicking on the button in the top left corner labeled “Image”. This is another drop down menu. This menu can help you with various photo issues, like color correction, image resizing, canvas resizing and the list goes on. For just resizing the image and not the canvas you want to click on “Image resize”
You will see a menu like this, as you can see this image is in 1920×1080. To change this all you need to do is change the width and height. 640×480 800×600 1024×768 the size possibilities are endless really.
Once your image is re sized you’ll want to save it of course. What I recommend to do is to use the “Save As” feature. There are two reasons for this:
1: If you don’t like the image size, you always have the original.
2: Every time you save the image it loses a bit of quality, so once again you might want to hang onto the original.
