Now let’s get started with its features
First of all here is the file menu given, in the file menu, first option is NEW
shortcut of new is ctrl+N.
We use new for opening a new page.
First here is given “name”
in name you can give any name for your page according to you
For example, let's give the name as page no.1 .
Under that there will be an option called “document type”.
In that different types of documents are available
such as :- U.S. paper, international paper, photo, web and many other document types are given.
In U.S. paper normally, there are different sizes of papers are given like letter, legal
Under international paper the sizes like A4, A5, A6, A3 are given.
After that here given is “photo”
photo has 2 things
Now what are landscapes and portraits?
. Landscapes means horizontal page
. Portraits means vertical page
Vertical page means it contains more height and less width of the page.
The landscape has the opposite, more width and less height.
Suppose here we can give landscape of 2*3
So here you can see the width is 3 and height is 2 as a result paper became long.
And now if we will take portrait of 2*3
width will be 2 and height will be 3.
So in this way happens landscapes and portraits.
After that here it comes web,
there are some different sizes related to web are given
this means if we want to make any websites or any templates of websites
So for that different sizes are provided to us
you can use any of those sizes.
After that, here is given mobile app design

Here are its measurements given, pixels, inches, centimeters.
In this way here are resolutions also given
you can see here already is a resolution of 300
What is the use of 300 resolutions?
If you are making any design with the purpose of painting then you have to use 300 resolution. Otherwise, if you have a purpose to show it on any screen or to make any webpage for a website or to design a mobile application, the resolution should be 72.
So basically, resolution depends on the purpose of design.
It's a raster based software, so normally here RGB is used, RGB means red green and blue
If use is for printing, CMYK is used, cyan, magenta, yellow, black. Like this other color modes are also available.
Normally we have to use RGB.
Under that here is given background content, you have to keep background content only white.
Except that if you want to keep any other background content, there is an option of background color
From the background color, you can add a background of any color.
For example, here I am putting red so the background will be changed into a red color.
If you want to put it as transparent, transparent means if you want the background anyhow, zero background, background will be removed and transparent will be there.
Normally here you have to use white color
After doing all these as I will click ok, my page will be opened here.
