  6. Great tutorial, Jayan! Having read many, many tutorials and created some myself, your attention to detail, along with screenshots, is wonderful. I am familiar with artboards in Illustrator, but have yet to work with them in Photoshop. I love what I am seeing and look forward to working through your tutorial for creating social media posts in different sizes for the different social media platforms. Thanks so much!
