26 Aug Creating A Simple Flyer Through Photoshop
An event flyer is a great option to promote your event. It is crucial to design your brochure with the right elements to catch the targeted audience. You can use Adobe Photoshop to create impressive digital flyers.
There are different sizes of flyers in Photoshop. You can choose 4.25” x 5.5” (1275 x 1650 px), 5.5” x 8.5” (1650 x 2550 px) or 8.5” x 11” (2550 x 3300 px) as per your requirement. For digital signage, the recommended pixel size is 1920 x 1080 pixels. The desired image resolution is 72 or 96 dpi.
By using an ad template, you can design a new flyer very easily. If you are starting from scratch, the following steps are useful:
Choose the correct size and settings for the document to print the artwork without any issues. After choosing a new blank file, you should choose the width, height, resolution, and color mode. The resolution can be 300 pixels per inch for prints, and the color mode can be CMYK. If you choose an A5 size sheet, the bleed area can be 3mm from the edge.
Creation of guides
By creating guides, you can define the bleed area on the document. Guides are not generated automatically in Photoshop. Hence, you should add them manually. You can use the Move tool while pressing the shift key to create a horizontal guide. After creating the guide on one edge, you should repeat the step for the remaining three sides. You should ensure that at least a 3mm bleed area is left from the edge.
As soon as you create a new document, you should select the background. You can import images into the file, and you are advised to create one layer for each imported image. Moving and editing of images will be made easy by organizing them into different segments.
Layer style panel helps you edit the Gradient. The slider size and color can be selected from the panel. A rectangle tool can be used to create a rectangle tool, and it can be aligned in one corner or the center as per the design. With a pen tool, anchor handles can be adjusted to produce a pleasant Bezier curve. Similarly, various tools such as move and filter can be used as per your needs to improve the image.
Add text and logo
Tools panel allows you to insert text on the graphic. After choosing the text tool, you should click on the image where you want to enter a text. The text will appear on a new layer. You can press ‘Escape’ button to exit the text field. The Font type, size, and color can be applied as per images.
Add photographs at the bottom
To insert a new photo or image at the bottom, you can choose a rectangle shape and choose the size as per the image. Using File->Place Embed option, you can insert a new image.
Choose the right CMYK colors and bleed area to get the best digital prints. Don’t hesitate to consult your printers to make the most of your artwork.
