Photoshop gives great operational scope and independence to perform action and effects over images. You can work over a canvas of size ranging from ‘2’ pixels and can expand it to even up to ‘30,000’ pixels. You can change the image size and canvas size of your image at any time. When you increase your canvas size, you actually increase your work space so that you can incorporate some more creativity on your canvas.
Sometimes when you are editing an image in Photoshop, you may find that the canvas size is no more available for expanding your image, thus hindering your creativity. When this happens, you can at any time increase canvas size on Photoshop.
If increasing your work space is your main concern, you should follow the below described procedure, and the steps will lead you to increased canvas space:
- Initialize the Photoshop 7.0 program, from the Start menu, using any account.
- On the interface, select File from the menu bar.
- From the drop-down list that appears, click on Open.
- On the Open box that appears, locate and open the target image.
- Back on the interface, select Image from the menu bar.
- From the drop-down list that appears, click on Canvas Size.
- On the Canvas Size settings box, increase Width and Height in inches.
- On the interface, select File from the menu bar, and click on Save.
The canvas size or the work-area is now increased, and you can get your hands-on on it.
Similarly, image size can also be increased. All you have to do is select Image Size option from the Image menu instead of Canvas Size, and you can increase the size of the image.
You can specifically set your canvas and image size up to any standards by using either pixels or inches from the settings box. This functionality gives you a higher level of customization and increased perfection over the image creation.
