Many creative projects start with a new blank file.…Maybe you're making a poster for an event, designing a scrapbook page or coming…up with graphics for a PowerPoint presentation or a web site.…To make a new blank file, I am going to go up to the File menu and choose…New and Blank File.…Here in the New dialog box, I'll type a name for my new file.…I like to use a meaningful name that I'll recognize later.…So let's say I am making a postcard.…That's what I'll type there.…I don't have to bother typing the file format because when I save the image…later, the file format will be automatically added to the file name.…
Now, if you're not sure what to put in the rest of the fields, you can just use…one of the presets that comes with Elements.…From the Presets menu, I can choose the kind of document I am making;…say Scrapbooking, and then in the Size menu I can get more specific about the…size of the scrapbook page that I want.…So let's say I choose 8 x 8.…That sets all of the other fields here.…I can just click OK and I'm ready to go.…
