Creating Multiple Banner Ads Layout Using Artboard in Photoshop CC 2015

Creating Multiple Banner Ads Layout Using Artboard in Photoshop CC 2015

Step 39

Add logo text below steak logo.

Step 40

From the layers panel, we can close or open the artboard group. We can also easily to duplicate the artboard by pressing CTRL+J.

Step 41

Use Move tool to drag artboard copy below the original one.

Step 42

This way, we can conveniently make design change without having to create new document. Each artboard is completely grouped separately. As you can see below, I can get two different design in one document.

Step 43

It doesn't stop there. Photoshop allow us to change the artboard size easily, by dragging the control point or change Width and Height value from the Properties panel. Have a notice, if you change the artboard size smaller, some layers will left outside the box. In this example, I change the artboard copy width to 336 px and height to 280 px.

Step 44

Make some composition adjustment for the green background and food bowl image. See image below as your reference. Next, manually insert those layers that left outside into artboard box using the Move tool. Start with the "Save up to 30% OFF" text layers.

Step 45

Upscale the discount texts, then insert the call-to-action button inside the artboard.

Step 46

Don't forget to insert back the steak logo and text into the artboard.

Step 47

Change artboard name to "large rectangle (336x280)". Double click artboard name to do this step.

Step 48

Now we need to create new artboard. Grab the Artboard tool. Click the New artboard button, then set the width and Height for new artboard. In this example, set the Width to 120 px and Height to 600 px.

Step 49

Still using Artboard Tool, click once in the blank area to create new artboard. Rename the artboard to "Skycrapper (120x600)".

Step 50

In this new artboard we will reuse the same element from previous artboard. So, get back to previous artboard and select both green rectangles within layers panel. Grab the Move tool, then hold ALT while dragging the rectangles from "large rectangle" artboard to "skycrapper" artboard. This will copy both rectangles into skycrapper artboard.

Step 51

Press CTRL+T to resize the rectangle so it fits with the artboard width. Press ENTER to confirm transformation.

Step 52

Another way to copy elements from another artboard is dragging it from the layers panel. First, duplicate the layer (in this example, duplicate the sunburst layer). Drag the sunburst copy layer from large rectangle group across to skycrapper group.

Step 53

Repeat Step 50 or Step 52 until all layers is copied into skycrapper artboard. Make some adjustment with the image and text. See image below for composition layout reference.

Step 54

Once everything is set and done, we can export the artboard. Do this by going to File> Export> Export As. Inside Export As window, we can select the file format for each artboard.

Step 55

Photoshop CC 2015 allow us to to save each artboard with different file format and quality. So in this example, I choose .jpg for skycrapper artboard, .gif for leaderboard artboard and .png for large rectangle artboard. Once you're ready, click the Export button.

Step 56

Photoshop will ask destination folder to save the files. Click Export button to start exporting.

Step 57

Once done, you can check the export location. If done correctly, you will get 3 different file types for each artboard.

  1. I am stuck at this step
    "We can repeat transformation and also copy the shape at the same time by pressing ALT+SHIFT+CTRL+T. Do this once to see how it works."
