Part 6. Image Editing Basics > Task 2 How to Add Canvas

Task 2 How to Add Canvas

Task 1 looked at how to scale an image up or down by increasing the resolution or dimensions of the image itself. In contrast, this task explains how to keep the image the same size and just add more workspace around it. Photoshop calls this extra workspace canvas and enables you to specify exactly how much is added. Adding canvas is important when adding and combining images, when adding flat color for text, or anytime you need to increase the image dimensions without enlarging the image data.

1. Open the Image

Open the image file with which you want to work. By default, all files have a canvas that is identical to the image dimensions.
