Friends, in the last session of Photoshop, we had learnt completely about the move tool.
In today's session we shall learn about art board tool.
Where and how is it used?
Now Here, inside the tools, there is one tool given along with move tool which we will call as an artboard tool.
Now what is the use of the artboard tool?
When we had previously opened a new page from “new”, we can call that new page as an artboard tool.
So here by using the artboard tool, you can make a new art board according to your own size.
And you can add new artboards in it, as well.
I'll show you .
You have to click here and drag it with the click .
As you drag it, there you will see its width and height on its side.
What is showing me now, Width is shown me 4.733 inches and height is shown as 2.813 inches . okay?
I'll change the width to 5 inches, And my height will be 2.893 inches .
As soon as I leave my click, this much area will be cropped.
So this is my art board which means this is my new page .
In this you can see. a plus sign is given on all the four sides.
On whichever sign you will click, a new art board will be added.
Like I click on the plus sign at the bottom here.
As i clicked on the plus sign, see A new art board of the exact same size, which means my new page is created here .
If i click at the side, one more page is made here.
This means you can use more than one artboard simultaneously.
Now you can see on artboard 3, points are given on all four sides.
You can increase or decrease its size by using these points.
For example, I'm decreasing it from here by clicking on it, so it's width is also decreasing and I'm leaving it.
So the size of this page became smaller than the other artboards.
Look here, artboard 2 is big and artboard 3 is smaller .
Now if i click on upper plus sign .
So the fourth artboard of the same small size has been created here.
So that means in this way you can make more than one artboard.
If you have any queries or comments, click the discussion button below the video and post there. This way, you will be able to connect to fellow learners and discuss the course. Also, Our Team will try to solve your query.
There can be zero, one, or more Artboards on the Canvas. Consider the canvas to be a table, and each artboard to be a piece of paper. The artboards on the canvas can be organised in the same manner that papers on a table can be.
Artboards are useful for building interfaces since they allow you to present multiple canvases on the same document. When you create a New Document in Photoshop, change the Document Type to Artboard and then choose an Artboard Size. Use the Artboard Tool to add more Artboards to your canvas.
The move tool is combined with the artboard tool in the Tools panel to build special group layers called artboards that define canvas subareas and expand the canvas as they are moved. An artboard is a rectangular-bound container that functions similarly to a layer group in many aspects.
With an Artboard tool chosen, drag the handles surrounding the Artboard to modify its size. Change the width, height, and orientation of an Artboard tool by using the properties in the Options bar. Change the size of an Artboard by using the properties panel.
This may be found under the Image > Image Size menu. 8. The Image Size dialogue box shows that my artwork is 8.26" wide by 7.22" high, with a resolution of 300.
