You will create a new document. You can also do this with the shortcut "Ctrl" + "N". If you prefer, you can open an existing document from the menu as well. There are other VisiHow tutorials on how to do these. In this video, a new document is created. You will have your document opened. The "Selection Tool" black arrow will be automatically selected. You can find "Selection Tool" at the top of the vertical tool bar on the left side of the window.
If you already have the objects ready, you can select them by using the "Selection Tool" arrow
If you wish to select more than one object, hold "Shift" on your keyboard as you click the objects. In this video, an object is going to be created by clicking the "Rectangle Tool" and creating a shape. The blue frame around the edge of the shape will tell you that your object is now selected.
The default value is 50%. For a satin effect, a medium opacity is recommended, so that the image looks more convincing. You can change the "Opacity" value by typing or using the drop-down menu and pulling the scroller across.
