Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting started, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…There are a few options that we should discuss…with regards to setting up the file for our composite.…We need to decide what file size, bit depth,…color space and canvas size we want to work with,…as well as how to configure Adobe Camera Raw so…that it can hand off the correct type of file.…When I'm creating my composites, I typically like to start with a blank…canvas and then drag and drop all of my different elements into that canvas.…So I'm going to choose the File…menu, and then select New.…Here, we're going to customize some of the settings.…
Before I start creating the composite, I need…to know how large this composite needs to be.…Now, when I create composites, I create them…large enough so that I can print them.…In fact, I create my composites so that they're…22 by 22 inches at 360 pixels per inch.…However, for these demos, in order to save…time as well as disk space, we're…actually going to create significantly smaller canvas sizes.…In fact, we're going to change the width…to six inches and the height to six inches.…
