Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have Photoshop open, and either create a new document or open an existing document.
    We've shown how to do that in other videos. We can see that we have a document open, indicated by the tab on the right. It has one layer on top of a background layer, which we can see on the right-hand side. This means that we can move the top layer around.

    We also have the option to add different tools, but we'd recommend leaving that alone.

    We can click the check boxes next to the options at the top.
    "Resize Windows to fit", and "Zoom all Windows".

    We can also zoom in "Actual Pixels", "Fit Screen", "Fill Screen", or "Print Size".
    We mostly use "Fit Screen". It makes it easier to work, and we can still see the entire canvas.
