Next step is how to change Background color. You can see that on First image above I had light background... and on this one is darker. If you want to change a color, then click with RIGHT MOUSE button ON the background (gray area). You'll see more options: Black, Dark Gray, Medium Gray, Light Gray, Custom and Select Custom color... (if you have older PS versions, then you probably have Black, Gray and Custom color options in that menu). I had Dark Gray here and when you want to choose new color then simply click on Select Custom Color menu...and choose new color.
You can also rotate canvases (I think that in older PS versions...in CS5 this works... there Rotate option doesn't exist). Simply choose Rotate View Tool on the left tool bar (see image above)...or click R button on your keyboard. To rotate the canvas use your Mouse or you can select Angle in the tool bar above (see the image). If you want more "sharp" angles then hold SHIFT on your keyboard (and you'll get correct angles).
1.) More PS basics... on the first image you can see how to select Layer visibility. If you want that layer is visible, then simply leave EYE icon VISIBLE. If you want to hide layer then click on the EYE icon and it'll turn invisible (if you want to turn it visible again, then click on the icon again).
Yeah... another free journal skin for you (note: only premium members can use journal skins). I did another collaboration with awesome weida34 (I did design and she did coding... again). Well, new skin is this which I use right now... MetalliC_V2 (you can click here to install it). Our other collaborations were Sketchbook and Nature

Magazine looking for artists
Hey guys! I hope you are doing amazing I have a small request; please read the journey till the end so that you don't miss out on the incredible simplicity and benefits of Color Balance. I understand that some of us like to read the journal halfway and jump to a conclusion, which might not be ideal. I'd be grateful if you could please allow me to make an unbiased demonstration simply by watching the entire journalist. Lots of love! Thank you by me http://www.razelion.com/2021/03/pet-fusion-merge-table-list-utopia..html
Hey, I loved this tutorial, I am currently looking to add writers to my publication. Would you be interested in becoming a writer for my publication? There is no deadline to be met. You can publish whenever you want to. Its a win-win for you! Let me know!
I have recently transferred from Paint Tool Sai to Photoshop CC after a very short period of using it, mainly because of personal taste and how comfortable I am on using which program. Of course since I'm still completely new to Photoshop as a beginner artist, it is rather overwhelming at first but your tutorial is slowly helping me get a better understanding of it.
Although... one small problem I'm having is that when I imported a .sai file of my current drawing to .psd, for some odd reason I only get a transparent checkered background instead of the normal white background. But then I realised it's because I don't have a proper background added. Is there any way to fix this? Because the last thing I wanted is to have to redraw my artwork all over again a third time after it first crashed on me. No offence.
Update: Never mind, I figured out how to do it. I was just being dumb.
Oh yes, Photoshop has quite many options and is pretty different from SAI, so it might take some time till you get used to them But when you get comfortable with it, then it's quite easy to use it
HAHA and I'm glad you figured it out
Yeah, I was sorta aware about SAI being different compared to Photoshop like you said to be honest. But that's what the tutorials are for right?
Hopefully I will be able too soon. I mean I am a pretty quick learner, but yeah, it will just take time. Although I did recognise that some brushes and tools work in a similar matter to each other so that will be easy to an extent.
Yep! All I did was go to Layer -> New -> Layer from Background. It was so simple that it was right under my nose! Then again I wished SAI had a Background layer from the beginning so it wouldn't cause such a problem despite being minor.
It's really Awsome! Thanks a great deal! It's easy understandable (even for dummies like me). Thanks!
Will you perhaps make a tutorial for vectoring? Would really help.
