Sizing up your document is relatively easy in Adobe Photoshop. Presets are available for social media, film & video, and pixel-loving web designers. But there are no templates for A0, A1, or even A2. Yikes. That’s undoubtedly an overlook by the peeps at Adobe. However, Resource Moon is here to show you how you can make those sizes a reality.
Making the Document
The only thing you need to think about is the size. Yes, size matters. So, before we take up more of your time, here are the dimensions for all the bigger-sized sheets.
Tip: Ensure you use ‘Millimeters’ as your source of measurement.
- A0 (841mm x 1190mm)
- A1 (594mm x 841mm)
- A2 (420mm x 594mm)
Choosing a Colour Mode
Before you proceed, ensure you choose either RGB or CMYK colour spaces. While both work, CMYK is favoured if you print on materials as it achieves “true colour.”
Set Up Your Margins
Before we finish up, suppose you’re printing and have no guides. Go to ‘View’, scroll down to ‘Guides’ and click on ‘New Guide Layout.’ This option will help you create margins, rows, and columns to ensure you work within safe areas for your project.
And if you’re still uncertain on how to do this. Watch our video below.
