    Tutorials making questions

    @Ryguy Please don't move this to Help section, the skilled ones won't see it there.

    So, what is the proper size of the layer for a tutorial?
    And what size should be the images inside the layer?
    Do you use pre-made backgrounds when making tutorials or design them yourself?
    I'm thinking about making simple tutorial(s), but I need some basic info to start with...

    Move this to the Help section, and yes, most people look there too.

    The skilled ones (Doc, Eth, Ry, Scr...) don't look there... at least not most of the times.

    Size: really? Make it as big as you need it
    Inside images size: original size unless there fucking huge
    Background: your choice

    What do you mean by "as big as you need it"?
    I could make it 700x1900 and after 2 hours figure out I need more space and have to start all from the beggining because I can't stretch only one layer (the background)...

    Guess how much space you need. Start off with a solid color background and then if you need more space just go to image>resize canvas (or something like that) and then make it bigger. Before hitting okay after resizing make sure you hit the top arrow out of the like 8 there are to choose from, this will make sure what you had will stay on top and everything added will go to the bottom.

    All layers taken from a sig or w.e you are working with should have the same original dimensions.

    As for the background you could get a premade one or make it yourself.

    Then you need to get more general knowldge of Photoshop
    All you do is go image>canvas size
    Hell just take out the crop tool and instead of cropping it stretch out the crop area to make it bigger
