How to setting up Canvas Background Color in Photoshop? Color is indeed a very important element in graphic design, because with color a design will look attractive.
In the Adobe Photoshop application there are many ways to give color to an object. For this article I will discuss about how to give a background color to the canvas or work document in Adobe Photoshop.
Giving color to the background is certainly very important, because that is the basic color in an image or photo. There are so many ways to give a background color, and this tutorial applies to all versions of Photoshop.
Giving color to the background is still basic, also when viewed from the level of difficulty. It's still very easy. We just go with the easiest way.
By Using Solid Color
First, we are required to create a new working document. By clicking the 'file' menu and selecting 'new'. Or you can press 'CTRL+N' on the keyboard.
Next, we will be faced with the option to set the working document that we will use. Here we can freely set it as needed, I give an example like this.
After the working document appears, click the “Create new fill or adjustment layer” icon which is below the layer. Then select 'solid color'.
Then a variety of color options will appear that we can choose as we wish, I gave an example by giving blue.
And our working document has been colored by the color we chose earlier.
By Using the Pen Tool
As I have discussed many times before. The pen tool is a tool that has a variety of functions, one of which is that it can give color to the background.
First, select the pen tool with 'shape' mode.
After the points are formed, double click on the shape layer and a color option will appear to give color.
I again gave the example of wearing blue.
And here is the result.
By using the pen tool, we can not only color the background. But it can only be done by coloring some of the parts according to the points that we place.
Using the Shape Tool
Similar to the pen tool, by using the shape tool we can color the background. The difference is, with the shape tool the method is simpler.
First, select the shape tool with 'rectangle' mode.
Place the cursor at the top left of the document, try to be outside the working document. Then drag using the cursor until it covers the entire working document.
After that, the same as using the pen tool. Select the shape layer and choose the color you want.
By Using the Paint Bucket Tool
First, we first change the color of the foreground color according to the color we want. By clicking on the foreground color icon, it will display color options.
Select the paint bucket tool
Click anywhere on the working document, then the document will automatically be filled with the foreground color that we have chosen earlier.
Those are some ways that we can do to give the background color to the canvas in Adobe Photoshop.
If we examine again, of course there are still ways to give color. We can freely choose which method we will use according to our needs. Hopefully this article helps friends who are learning design about Canvas Background Color in Photoshop.
