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 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.
