Join Emily Kay for an in-depth discussion in this video Custom templates, part of Photoshop for Web Design.
- [Instructor] Photoshop comes with some helpful templates,…but if you're a designer, you'll probably find yourself…wanting to use your own template files.…Sadly, there's not a way to currently save…your own psdt file, and have them available…within the template window of the Photoshop start screen.…But I'll show you my workaround…to create custom templates for use as starter projects.…What I've done here is created a file…that contains a mixture of art boards, grids, guides,…smart objects and editable text…to develop more of a wireframe layout.…
