Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Sizing a photo for a video project, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology (2014).
- Let's go ahead and size some images for video delivery.…This will be a good workflow, cause it will involve…placing the images at the right size,…as well as taking advantage of some…sharpening settings and keeping safe title…and action safe zones in mind.…To start, I choose File New.…I'll pick from the film and video presets…and select one that works for my delivery.…In this case 1080p.…Now, as we just discussed, the guides here…are a little bit off, but I'll treat the outermost lines…as being most useful.…
If I don't want to ignore those,…I can just pull these inner lines…off the canvas and I'll use this as a guideline…so that any critical elements that need to be read,…fall within.…To place the photo, I'll do just that.…File, Place.…Depending on your version of Photoshop,…you may see an option to place it as an embedded file,…or a linked file.…A linked file will need the dependency on the disk.…I generally prefer embedded…so the file becomes part of the new document.…
Let's navigate here and just select some images.…
