Creating Layers for Your File

When using Photoshop, it's essential to employ layers consistently. This practice maintains file organization and provides you with the freedom to revisit, modify, or refine individual elements as needed. The process of creating layers is straightforward. On the right side of the Layer panel, you'll notice an icon resembling a folded piece of paper. Clicking on this icon will instantly generate a new layer for your project. (Refer to the image on the right for visual guidance.)

*Keep in mind that the file must have a resolution of 300 dpi to be suitable for printing.

This is what the final result will look like. It's a good idea to separate every part to keep your file neat and easy to work with. This is often referred to as the MASTER file. (Check the image on the right for an example.)

NOTE: Do not merge or flatten your file.

What is Resolution?

Resolution, in the context of images, refers to the level of detail within an image and is typically quantified in pixels per inch (PPI) or dots per inch (DPI). A higher PPI indicates greater resolution. Resolution is calculated by multiplying the number of pixels along an image's width and height. For screen printing, 300 DPI is the standard resolution to achieve high-quality prints. To better understand how resolution functions, please refer to the accompanying images for illustrative examples.
