1. Organizing your Layers in Photoshop: Hey, everyone. And welcome to the next lecture this election we're gonna be talking about or Gacy organization and pretty much best practices in Photoshopped on. Also, this gonna be applied outside of photo shop and I'll touch base more on that later on. Ah, but pretty much when you're working in a document it when you start adding a lot of things , it could get really confusing. And basically I have a, um example here that obviously covered in another lecture. But I want to use again just as a general reference. So as you're building your photoshopped files, you'll tend to put more things in there, and it will tend to get more confusing. Um, and then you'll start. Ah, have layers go on top of each other and things go into each other, and then it just becomes a big nightmare. So this is where your layers panel comes in, and it becomes very handy using the color, um, tagging sections here and creating folders. And basically what you want to do is layer your pieces in ah, hierarchy order. That makes sense. So, for example, for Web, I want to do my header at the top uh, my hero image in the middle. Anything in the body in the body folder, and then anything in the footer at the bottom. I'm now, as you can see, have several different individual pieces here, which I haven't yet put into folders. But I'm in the process of doing and again, this is where it kind of gets confusing. So to pretty much start with getting organized and making yourself or make your life a lot easier. Started making folders. So, for example, if you're building at your file, whatever it may be, if you're building a button, build the button and then group in in a folder and by grouping at you would select um, the top or bottom layer. Hold the shift key. Click again on that layer that is part of that grouping hit command G, and it will group it for you. And then when you turn it on and off, it's all there in the group that you want to move it around. I don't move in the group. Um, once that is done, then you're right. Click the folder and then you will basically colorize each folder. So if you know that your header or the top piece of your project's gonna be read. Make it read. Um, I like to just go down the line just easier for me on more, um, hierarchy sense because it's in order here. Ah, for just me personally. But, you know, do it however you please, if you know your top. And I'm sorry if you know your header and footer are going to be, um, locked pieces. You know, make those locked pieces of red, have your foot at the bottom, lock it by hitting the lock icon here, make it red, and then go from there. Here's my footer again in it Committed to a smart object. But I'm gonna put it in its own folder. Just so it's nice and organized Gonna make this red and there we go. So now I know that the reds are the top and bottom of the footer. Now, if you're starting to get into a lot of different layers, you know, coloring can help you, but make sure you organize it to your own needs that make sense to you. If you're gonna be passing it off to someone, be sure that it makes sense to them. Um, so pretty much being organizing photo shop is a big, crucial key toe giving yourself, um, a better workflow managing headaches If you're looking for stuff and you know, if you need to click on a layer and you don't know where this, um, pieces and you don't want to dig through the folders, there are shortcuts you can dio eso won. Shortcut is you can click this selection tool up here Go appeared at the top or circling. You want hit auto Select and you want to hit Layer group. It will just like the group. But if you want to get that individual piece, excuse me, you just hit layer. So let's say I want to select this title of this person. I click it and it takes you right to the title. And there it is, Um, so you don't have to pretty much go through. Oh, it's in the body and then you have toe kind of turn on an awful layers. Now, as you can see, my body is all yellow, and this can sometimes get confusing if you have multiple things inside of a body or a bigger section. And that's when you can break it down again into folders and again when When you're looking for a specific thing like I did, it was clicking on it. If they're all the same color this, you get confusing, cause then you're gonna have to do the process of touring stuff on and off to find out exactly where it is too. So to see that aggravation is good, it is to organize everything. It can also be a downside when you're trying to look for something and that is a little tip right there to find something quickly. If you can't do it, another thing you could do is you go hold on the command key and then click. And with photo shop CC, it will actually outlining for you. Tell you the dimensions of it. And, um, it'll tell you how far it is from the top of your document. Again, I command clicked, and then it took me right to the layer. So those are two different ways. Toe find layers to go back to the layers panel and talk about managing. Like I said, the body Fuller has a lot going on if you want. You know, if you have specific things that are all in relation to each other. For example, buttons. And you know all your button folders air going to be green. Make him green. But keep in mind you want to make sure you realize the green for that particular section of your folder. Don't get confused with your main folders. You know, have you mean full this color coordinated as possible? And then when you start getting deeper and deeper into your layering, make sure you keep your colors organized that were, you know what's what. So you know your buttons or green. You know that this, um, these pictures of everyone are maybe read are not red yellow? No. Obviously tell a purple picked picked a color. Um, it dropped it. And I'm like she looking for folder. She looks like it doesn't have, so I can actually make one if I It's winter. So that's so see, I'm doing the process because I don't know where things are so that goes from there to there. Group it. There we go. There's my section. I'll make it violet or call it your images. And there we go. Like I said, make sure you organize them. In a way we're there. Hierarchal higher have a hierarchy. So this obviously is one of the first things will see. So that's there. If I have any text related to it, I will put it in that folder. So look for the text. Look for any design and elemental pieces. They think that's everything will go back up. And now I know what the color the folder is, so I don't have to worry about Oh my God, where is it now? When you pop it in the Fullerton automatically put it at the bottom. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to move into top and I'm going to change the color to match this folder so I don't get confused. And there we go. There's my section. I had the button obviously separate because I have a button folder for it. But I if I want, I can take the button and put it in this actual folder just so it stays together within its family and so on and so forth. So that's pretty much a general sense of hierarchy and layering things, you know, make sure you're doing it in a way where it makes sense to you and, you know, you can find things specifically, it'll save you a lot of time. Unfortunately, only have 123467 Call institution. They typically don't use gray. It's kind of hard to see. For example, click it. It kind of blends them with the great background. So, you know, I tend to use brighter colors, um, and focus that way. Like I said, I if you have too many folders, you know, kind of break them up into sections, you know, big sections and then from inside those holders, break him up into little sections and then again into little or sections with your buttons and whatnot. So pretty much that's it for organization. Um, it really does help these not techniques. But these color swatches, uh, that you have in your folders save a lot of time. Now, I said earlier that you can do the same set up, um, five. The program. And that's something I highly recommend because if you're doing something for a client and they have you change something 20 different times, that can get to the point where if you're not saving everything correctly with correct file naming management. Then it will come to a point where you might send them the incorrect file. And they said, Oh, this is, you know, version six. You know? Where's version 10? Ah, and that's where your folder managing comes in and I'll talk about that next. All right, see you guys there. 2. Organizing your files on the Computer: everyone and welcome to the next lecture. Last lecture. We talked about a Photoshopped organization with grouping folders and color coordinating things just to make it easier to understand what's in your document. Because document, we've got big Well, basically what we did there. We're gonna apply it to our desktop and our main computer. Um, this can be applied to both PC and Mac, So it's pretty much a general Ah, simplistic thing that can be done on both platforms. So basically, I have here an example Project folder with different folders inside of it. Now, it's pretty much good to get in the habit of doing this, because if you have projects for clients or you're doing it for personal yourself, you can run into a lot of issues of getting confused, of which files which, if you just all dump it into a folder or into your desktop, which is not really good practice. Um, basically, when you're working in projects, you want pretty much break up everything and keep it nice and organized. That way, you can send in the correct files if you are working with clients or you for your personal self. If you want to upload them to a portfolio site or, um, set into a friend or whatever you want to make sure it's all up to date. That way you can put it on the correct site, send them to correct file, or even if you need to go back to it. You know, a year later, six months later, you know where it is. Then then you could pick up where you are. So basically. Like I said, I have an example. Project Ah, folder that I've created. And inside I have PSC's PDS old JPEG in A I basically because this is a photo shop class. Obviously PST is will be in the PSD folders. But up here we have a I for illustrator. If you have any illustrator documents that are pertaining were related to your PSD folder. So if you're working another programs like Illustrator in Design, you have accepted folder in that project. That way, it's all bundled together and you know where they are. Another good habit you can do is organized by color as well known. Umax Um, supposing to the very old ones, even though it was two operating systems ago, usedto have a whole color bar on the folders Actually missed that because these dots of colors are very hard to see. And I don't really pay attention then because my eyes focusing here kind of misted the dots . But I'm sorry, the bar's but now they have dots and basically what I do is I call her court and need to dots to particular folders. So, for example, Photoshopped files and photo shop make blue because, well, photo shop is blue PDS because adobe acrobat is red. It's kind of white, but, you know, the local is red. Make it read old. I make it unusual and make it gray. The release in a color for Jay pegs will make that whatever you need. Just don't confuse it with the blue or the red for photo shop or P d. Efs. Um, so I made it green and then illustrators obviously orange and I made it orange. Um, you can also double up on colors. If you right click, you can select that and then it will double it. So if you want to you not confuse yourself, you can double it or put all them on their depending on how it works for you. This is just my general way of how I organize my files. So pretty much when we open them up we want to get into the habit of naming convention, as you could see. And you have three different files of PST is and I named them properly so because I was working on a fitness website. They named it Fitness website Version one. And then when I save it out, I go with updates. I saved his version to you and someone and so forth. Now there two ways to do that. You can pretty much make the edits to version one and then when you save it, go to file, save as and then save us version two or before you make the edits, you can just open up. Ah, the file. And then we go file save as, and this make it version two and then save it and then apply your, um you ply your edits to them. So pretty much you can do that. So we also have an old folder here on Basically. Like I said, here we have version 12 and three. So you don't confuse yourself and even though it's nicely organized so you can stay up to date with everything in your particular PSD fuller. You take the older version and you drag him into the old folder. That way, you know that this is the most current up to date, and if you ever have to revert to any old versions, you could just go into old, open up that older version and then make any necessary changes to that, or drag pieces over that you have deleted from the newer version. And then when you finally done with the project and you're completely satisfied with it or the clients happy with it, whatever it may be, then you can take the old folder and delete it and get rid of all that unwanted space. Because currently, this folder, as for this example, is probably a few 100 megabytes Yes, 34 megabytes. But that's for two pieces on. Then again, for the naming convention, I have nothing for I do. I have stuff for pdf's again file fitness. I'm sorry, fitness website version one fitness website version to you and version three, and because I don't want toe be confused, I can put these in the old holder because, you know, I want to keep up to date with the most up to date one. And then again with J Pegs you can have. We have version 12 and three. And we're gonna put these in the old folder because we don't need them on. We want to have the most up to date one. I have nothing in the AI file, um, folder. Because basically, I have no files that are from illustrator pertaining to this project. Actually, actually, I do. But I'm not gonna put it in here. I just wanted to show you the Fuller just Teoh give you a general idea of it, but that's pretty much it for organizing folders. Very straightforward. Very simple. You can set it up this way. You could set it up however you want. You can even do things like having that particular PSD just in the main folder and not have a PSD folder. Italy s that way. You could have your file in there, but that kind of looks weird. So I like having a folder and keeping them all neatly organized That way they're all there and then I know color wise, uh, what they're like. And then when I'm done with the project, I usually storm in a bigger folder and basically I go to again. I try to look for the colors because the dots are really helping. I go to a folder and then I put it in its folders. So because it's a Photoshopped project to go in a photo shop, I have sub folders in here, and basically I haven't broken up into PST is I haven't broken up into brushes that says personally how I do it. I'm actually starting to get the habit of breaking up them up into projects. And I kind of started doing that and other folders to like Illustrator um, the file. Some of them are in folders, Others are on their own. Um, and see what design I did the same thing I broken up by projects, and then they're all on their own folder. Ah, so pretty straightforward with organization. When it comes to saving out files, for example, J. Pegs or even pdf's, there are ways to do it quickly, But instead of going file, save as or something called layer comping, and basically you can save them out really quickly. And it you make almost different screenshots of what each part of your design will look like. If you're showing multiple screens, let's say for an application you can save them all out by turning on and off layers. And then it will spit out all the J picks for you in less than 10 seconds, and then you can save it that way with all version ones or twos and dump. That was in the old holder. And I'll show you how to do that, Um, in a few other sections later on, eh? So that's pretty much it for organization. Very straightforward. If you were going to save anything to the desktop, um, make sure you save it there if you know that it's going to be a short term thing. For example, if it's just gonna be an image you could put on your desktop, you know the background. Save that. If you know that the file is gonna only be there for a few days, put it in there. But get in the habit of making folders for that particular project. Now, I guess you could see for me I have a lot of stuff on my desktop, but that's because I have things on there that I know that I'm using in my current timeframe, Um, whether it's making videos for this class or if I'm doing other projects that I'm working on, you know, I haven't been there, but I've also started creating folders are things that I'm cleaning up the leading things. I don't need any more really getting out of going to folders. Like I said, there's some stuff on here that, um, don't have folders, but that's because their their own individual elements. So it doesn't make sense to make folders for them for me at the time. And this is how I usually work as you just throw him on there and then I'll delete them when I'm done. Um, but in most cases I always save him to my what you call it my graphic design folder. And then I say in my sub categories, whatever it may be, um, now it's saying, Ah, by date, I haven't put anything in here, and Mac sometimes doesn't recognize when you put stuff in there, whether it's the most up to date. Um So, for example, If I dumped the folder in there, it will still say March 1920 13. Um, Max, really weird like that sometimes. But again, you know, I if I'm making folders, sometimes we'll even saving to the desktop. So I know where they are. And then when I'm done with the project, I go on. I store it in this folder right here and then I know it's there, stored away, it's done. Or sometimes I'll even take it and put on a hard drive. And then I'll set it aside and then I'll continue working on projects and keep on going. So it's pretty much it for organization. Very straightforward. Um, you know, it's very good to get in the habit of doing organization on your desktop, and I am doing it even though it doesn't look like it on my desktop. But I set up ways like this, and I break everything up into, um, by projects and by file typing. And then I also save out things with file convention naming. So that way it'll make sense when you look up something I could always go to my finder and go um fitness. Oops, Website version three And there it is. And I know where, um, I need to get it and I click on it, and then it pops up and there's version one and version two and so on and so forth. So everything related to that? Another thing you can do, by the way before in this lecture you could also add tags to this. So even though we added a color, I can also add names to it. So, for example, if I know it's fitness, then I'm gonna go fitness. Uh, Jim work out, uh, client. Ah, it's a project, you know, kind of just tagging it. So that way you could find it better. And then that way, if you want to look for it. Fitness website three dot yes D no, I didn't find it interesting. Just copy it. They go show and find her. We'll show me all related to it. And there it is. Version three. Ah, but if I want to search with tags, I don't know if you could share with tags on Finder. I said chin. Yes, it doesn't look like you can search with tags in the finder window, But here in your, um tags on the side. When you add particular tags, two year ah file. It will make a folder for it. You open it up, and that's all the tags related to that particular name. So over here I have one called sunset, but it doesn't look like I have anything on there for sunsets. Anything for clouds, Jim. Same thing clients, you know, It pops up, work out, and so that's pretty much how you find them. But so when used the finer you find the file name and on the side with your tags, you can it organizes it and you can find it that way, if you want a pretty much tag, everything looks another good way to get into organizing. Ah, so that's pretty much it for this lecture. I will see you guys in the next one and see there 3. Multiple Saving Methods for Photoshop: everyone and welcome to the next lecture. And this luxury would have basically talk about saving basics. Um, and basically, I want to go over different saving modes in which each which each saved does. Sometimes a lot of people get confused about saving when you save out toe jpn x tiff. PNG is and all that. So I'm gonna explain what each one is and that what you could understand what they are. So pretty much all you have this file again open for the personal trainer, just psd as an example. Now, if I go to file, we have seen and save as and we also have export that we don't worry about export. We don't wear about import. But in some other programs, if you go to export that also have options to save out as Jay pegs and what not so well, we also have saved for weapon devices. So basically, if I want to save this out and send it to a client, let's say I would go to file and save for weapon devices in the book. Before I do that. I just want to hit, save as and explain a few things now I know what kind of just jumped the gun by telling you go to safer weapon devices. Let me just go through each one and tell you what each one does. So if you go to file, save basically, what save does it just saves any changes you made to your current document to go to file Save as we have a few options that you can choose to save. As for that particular document So we have four mats, different formats we can use so we can save it as a PST if you want to. Do you know, version two, like I talked about in the last section. Ah, you would save basically version to hit save, and then it will save to you wherever you put it. So I would put it in the example Project Roller, PSD s and I would save his version two in there, and then it would save. Our next category is the large document format. Now, if you saw when I went and talked about the, um, mock ups and you had the PSB, that's basically what a large document format is. It's the PSB, and if I pretty much going open that Goto open recent and we choose. Just use this one and then hopefully don't open really quick. And then if we go and open the folder come, where is the please take him. No, it's not in this one. All right? We'll open a biblical reasons. I'm not a business card. We'll go. Oh, God. OK, no one either. Let's go. Three for three. Uh, folder markup. Hey. Okay. This one should be it. There we go. OK, so in the PSB, basically is this we double click on it. And if you're just as example, gonna fall. Save as we see up here is his PSB. It saves this format large document format. And there it is dot psb um, exit out of this one we can go to This is it. Put your file in here. We put the file in there. This is a gun and PSB go to file, save as and then you save it as a PSB. Another thing you can do is go to file save, and then it will update in this document. But if you have something you wanted a pop in the document, for example, a smart object you want to put into a website, you can save it as a PSB and then go right Click it replaced with contents and then choose your PSB. So basically, that is what PSB is when it's talking about in terms of saving. If we go back to file seat as we have other options, BMP is a bit map. You have to worry about that. Um you know, to worry about the cops over GIF, you have to worry about this one. E p s is kind of like in illustrator. If you save out any PS basically can make any edits. And illustrator, it's kind of the same thing In photo shark you see about an E P s. You can open it with Illustrator Ah, you know where you got I f j Peg is obviously J peg. We save a JPEG, I'll save it will give us options that we can choose from So we could save, um with a white background with the state with the former on color, background, color, white, black and white and customize it. We can customize the quality and it tells us how big it would be. So the largest file size would be 3.3 megabytes. Um, you have to worry about thes options. Just keep it at Progresses file save as again, we go back. We don't worry about 2000 stereo on PF pc X three. Only ones really have to focus on a JPEG photo shop. Uh, you could do Photoshopped raw. Um, if you're working with photos Pixar. But you don't work at Pixar, so that's not needed. Or you don't use our products. Ah Ping, basically is something you say about for Web. A good example is, if you want to say about a logo with no background, you would save it out in a ping and obviously shut off the background. And then it's going on the Internet, and it's a very small file, but still good quality tiff can ignore Elise. Ah, tiff, basically is a very high res document. These documents that you would see used on billboards and giant print um, pieces for, uh, giant print size items. Whether it's a billboard or poster or a boner that's going across the building, that's what a tiff is on. You would use that in design file, so that's in terms of saving out. Now, these for mess down here, you can save. Basically a photo shop was a copy. Um, jp, you don't have any options. You can embed it the color the srg be for, you know, web safe colors. Um, for photo shop. I'm sorry for P d. F. Um, you can select these options if you want. I usually don't. When you do that, um, a box will open up. You hit. Okay. A box should open up, and then basically, you taken in tow another section where you could save the pdf modify it so we can basically select Ah, high quality print, which is, you know, if your printing something really big, not as big as a poster going across the building, but a big 11 by 17 or 12 by 18 whatever it may be, um, And then press quality for printing for press, um, and then smallest file size. If you want to send it across the web in an email, um, then we have other options over here. You can compress it. So if you want your pdf to be high quality as possible, but low in, um, megabytes, this is where you kind of tweak it edited around You can, uh, do you pretty much, you know, 200. Um, dp I compression. You want it to be j peg? You want the quality to be continued to be medium on them. When you going to save it says it's been modified. Its not custom it save, and then it will save at the bottom, which will take a good bit of time. Teoh pretty much save out depending how big your document is. So it's telling me some phones are missing. You know, make sure fonts are all in there that they can go into the pdf. It should be fine. I'll just hit. Okay to all. It might take some time to save out. It's kind of the downside to the new, um, photo shop is kind of happens in CS six, but when you save something out, it's taking a little bit longer. Depending on bigger file. Is this isn't that big? Maybe a 20 megabyte file. Um, so you kind of see like the saving progress. You can cancel it. You can expand it. Um, you can pretty much share it on the hands. Ah, if you That's another thing. When you download photo shop, I believe you get one year subscription. Um, actually, don't get us this question. You get a free profile to the hands and you can sign up separately. But if you go to the hands, you can link your files that you're working on from Photoshopped tuba hands and then it's a professional network for Or I should say, it's a community for artists to show. They're works of art they're working on from beginners to experts and professionals. It's obviously taking a while to say, But well, that's doing that. We're gonna go into safer Web and devices. Usually it was called safer weapon devices, and now they've changed it. So now in here, we have basically different, um, different screens because we have what's called a four up, and basically it's telling us this is our original. It's 22.8 megabytes. We have a next downsize quality, which is at 8822.5 kilobytes, and then it kind of keeps going down and down and down, and you can kind of see the quality as you zoom in. You really won't see it from far away. But if we focus on the letters we could see, obviously at the lowest quality one, it's a little bit blurred. 30. Uh, that's a percent quality, slightly better and then 60% qualities like the better. But you can kind of adjust that you can make it 70 and then it's slightly better than this one. You can make you know 40. And then that would be slightly better. You could also go to quality type, you know, maximum. Obviously, if you go this route, um, here, Maxim, you'll have 10 22 kilobytes. Here. You'll have to point 287 megabytes on this one. You know, if I make it Max because it was on high, it's gonna tell me to 2.287 megabytes. But basically, here's your, um, options. You can choose from low, medium high. I usually save between high and very higher. Really do maximum unless I want really good quality. I obviously selected to be optimized. Ah, just because I wanted to go out to my for the Web, I don't necessarily need to hit progressive. Um, it tells you know what it does it downloadable passes. Uh, I can embed a color profile to it. Get out of Blur, which I don't want to dio like a preview in a monitor. Any other type of formats, any metadata that's attached to it, any copyright or contacts, Um, you can adjust things your image size, Um, and then if you're going to a GIF, you can pretty much replay the gift. Ah, loop. So that's that for J. Peg. But we have a gift. So, you know, if I were to make a motion sensor motion image like cinema graph, which we'll talk about later on in this course, basically, I would go down here when I repeated, I choose the best quality one and then go from there. Next version is a PNG eight and A P and G 24. I usually save as a PNG 24 just because it's a lot easier for me now if I want to save a transparent item like I said before a logo. So, for example, if I wanted to save this piece, as is, I go to file save for Web. I go to P and G 24. What a load, and then basically ignore that basically, as you see here it is. The background is gone now it's not gone in the other ones, and that is because it saying, Well, this is at E J Peggy Sorge, Apex ex cetera. JPEG will have backer save it is Ping. It's going to be, um no background. And then you could put it on a website or a piece Ah, print without having the challenges of having just the background there and then figure out where to put it. You know, if you don't have a background in and then you place it anywhere you want and adjust it, how you like pings are also very good for APP developers. You give it to them in a pink format. Whether it's an icon or image, they can resize it, how they need to. Um so pretty much if I save it out, it's going to tell me it's 1.2 megabytes. There isn't really a way to change the size of it on that. You kind of have to do in the actual document itself. So if you file save, you save it, um, my examples Project folder, and I'm gonna say it in my J. Pegs. Because I don't like paying folder. I can create a ping folder. You know, all this great one just to have one, and then I'm gonna save it in there. I'm saving this version once. Understand the naming convention system. So there saves and open up this. Go to pings. We open that, and there it is, no background. So, for example, if I have a new documents and I added a layer and they made it yellow and I dragged and dropped this in. As you can see, there is no background so I can drag this wherever I want in. Place it wherever I want. I could place it up here. I could place it over here so I can even adjust it in terms of the size. Now, if you see that there's a slight border around it, that's fine. Right here. Um, you know, why aren't these transforming tools around the actual edge? Well, that's because when I saved it out, it basically saved out the document. Size is when I saved it out. If I go back to it, as you can see, it has a little border. Obviously it's still transparent, but If you wanted to fix that, you would just basically go to your crop tool, crop it to the edge and then save it out that way. But if you had, like a clear logo or something with the see through of a logo, kind of just leave it at it as is, and then you could save it out. However, you need to, um, give me an example of that actually grew up in this out. Here's a logo. So let's say me that local, that color a center it I crop it. It's too big, and I'm holding bolts right now, so it's proportional crop file. Safer Web. Here we go here. Options Gonna do P and G 24 save. Call this logo under scripts. Logo for everyone. Save to go back to that document. Delete that one. Go grab it and, as you could see has see through. There's no white background. So if I take this and I put it on a document, there it is. There's no white background. I can edit it and again there's the border. That's okay. Could still make it bigger and adjustment because she is good quality, very high Hi. Hi, Connie. For logo out. That's pretty much the Jonah idea for PNG. So if you go back and we go Teoh save Web, the next set is a w bit map. I really don't have to worry about a bit map right now. Um, the main ones you pretty much of using or J Peg and P and G 24 gift. If you want to make a motion Um uh, image and obviously know what gift is and pretty much frames of things that go on a loop. You see pretty much motion in it. So that's pretty much it for the saving. Next, we'll touch base on layer comping, and that is located Ah, in here. But it's locked because I have nothing on there. I go back to this one. Actually, we just add a layer Kump at something just to show you what I mean. That could be act. No, I'll show you in the next lecture and I'll get that going and we'll talk about later comping. And basically, when you export layer comp, it'll save it out. As Jay pegs PFS, you could save him as multiple p STs. It saves you a lot of time when it comes to saving things. Um, And again, we can also go over some other information as well. When it comes to exporting for saving. That's pretty much it in the saving section, I'll see you guys in the next one.
