Today we’re gonna solve one of the biggest problems that we as Photoshop errs face and that is how to fit image to canvas. Now here’s what I mean, have a look now. This is a very big image. If you click in here, and if you select document dimensions, you’ll be able to see the dimensions, and that is around five thousand pixels wide and at three thousand six hundred pixel height. Now, if you select all of it, control a command a and then control a command C and move into another canvas. This is a 1080 P. Or 192 zero into 1080 P canvas. If you paste it here, controller command V. This turns out to be a very humongous photo doesn’t fit into the canvas. And if you want to resize it, you will have to go ctrl a command D and then zoom out, and this is going to be a very tedious process so today. I’m going to give you some tips, tricks and techniques to make the process more faster, automatic, easier, quicker, so without any further ado, let’s get started so here we are back in. Photoshop for the same canvas and the same image. Now here’s the thing there’s not one way of doing it. There are several ways of doing it number. One change your way of importing your photos into the canvas so instead of going here and selecting all of it. Controller command, a controller command C and Ctrl Command B. What you need to do, you need to go to that folder and then select the image that you want. This was the image, just drag it, take it over the Photoshop icon and just release it over the canvas that you want and as soon as you do that, It adjusts automatically resizes automatically, according to the canvas in the form of a smart object. Now, if you hit enter as you can see, this is a smart object, which is a good thing, which means that if you make it bigger or smaller, it won’t lose any pixel details. It will retain the quality of the original image, which means that if the original image was say, 20 megapixels, it will still be 20 megapixels. If you make it bigger if you press control/command T and if you make it bigger, it won’t lose any details have a look. This was a big image. If I zoom in, it’s not losing any details, why because this is a smart object? Now here’s another way of doing it. If you don’t see it, resizing it automatically. Here’s what you need to do. Edit preferences and then general. Once you’re in general, make sure that resize image during place is selected and always create smart object when placing is selected. If you wanted to create a smart object, so once you make sure both of them are checked, click. OK, now here’s one more thing. If you don’t want to drag and drop, here’s what you can do. Delete it and all you have to do go to file place, embed it. Just click on that button and then select the image that you want. For example, this time, let’s select this image and place and automatically it adjusts to the canvas in the form of a smart object now. I want you to see something else. Okay, so let’s hit enter. This is a smart object. This is an image you can rasterize at any time you want. For example, you wanna just remove the wrinkles or enhance something which requires rasterization. So at that time, all you have to do just right, Click on it and select rasterize layer and there you have it now if you want it to be ready made already rasterized, here’s. What you can do, it’s very simple. I gave you the hint. In the beginning, the same general properties so leave this only have to do head–it preferences general and in the general preferences. Just check off these things. All these create smart objects when placing just check off this thing and it will not create smart object. It will rasterize the photo, but I highly recommend that this is checked now. Here’s one more thing skip transform when placing now one of the biggest nuances that we face that every time the importer photo. I know it’s adjusted. It already comes with transformation tool. You might need that transformation tool. You might not need that transformation tool, and accordingly you can check this off and on so this time it is by default unchecked. So if you check it, here’s what will happen, click. OK, and then when you import the photo, go to file place embedded or you can just drag-and-drop, it’s the same thing Place embedded say. I import this one. It will just skip it. It will rasterize the photo because we unchecked, always create smart objects. It will also skip the transformation because we made that choice in the general preferences. So these are the two very important features that I want to. Did you know so either you can drag and drop or you can go to file place, embed it? Also, you want to make the settings that you want. According to your work, looks go to the general preferences tab. You can do that by going to edit preferences and then select general. Also, if you are using a Mac, it would be under Photoshop and then preferences. Also what you can do. You can press control a command K to go to the general preferences tab directly right now. Let me give you a couple more tips and tricks, which can be useful now. Suppose you want to do that old fashioned way or you face a situation where you have to select and paste it into another canvas. What to do in that situation? Okay, so let’s go ahead and delete this. So for example, we have the same photo and we want to paste this using the same method controller command, a controller command C. And when you paste it here, here’s what you can do. The simplest thing is to go Controller Command T and it becomes quite huge. So you can press once you press ctrl or command T. You can press ctrl a command 0 your screen adjusts to fit all of this. Now make it smaller again. Press Controller, Command 0 your screen adjusts accordingly and again just do it and hit enter. And there you go now if you don’t press ctrl or command. D here’s what will happen. Okay, so let’s go back and if I don’t press ctrl or command T If I just directly press control or command 0 it will just adjust the canvas to the screen when you press control a command T. It will fit whole of the selection inside your screen. When you press Controller Command 0 OK, now coming back to the first method here was a problem, so when you dragged and dropped OK, for example, this photo when you dragged and dropped here was a cache, what it does when. Photoshop automatically resizes it matches the length of the shortest side of the image to the shortest side of the canvas, so the length of the shortest side was this. It matches it. It just makes it equal to the shortest side of the side of the canvas, and thus it leaves certain bars around the edge. Now here’s few workarounds. You can go control a command. T and you can crop the photo. Maybe you want to crop the photo from the bottom, so here’s. What you need to do controller command. T move the anchor point at the top, OK, and then hold shift and alt then it will make the image larger from the top and it will only crop the body. Okay, so number one crop number two, instead of fitting the image to the canvas, why not fit the canvas to the image? Here’s what I mean, so this image is smaller than the canvas, right, and that’s why we have these bars around this what we can do. We can go to image easily. Click trim. Okay, now. What that will do that will trim the extra parts of the canvas, trim anything which has no information and trim it to the size of the photo. Now here’s what. I want to warn you with. When you trim you change the aspect ratio of the canvas, suppose the aspect ratio of your canvas was 16 is to 9 and your image was square. Your aspect ratio will change to 1 is to 1 and you might not want that. So keep that in mind, okay, now that was when the image was smaller. You trim when you have a bigger image than the canvas. Here’s what you need to do, okay, so go to a big image will go to the same controller command, a controller command C and then paste it here now, instead of fitting the image into the canvas, how about making the canvas big enough to fit the photo? Here’s what you need to do, go to image, then review all see, the canvas becomes big enough to fit the furrow. In this instance, – the aspect ratio changed. Previously, our aspect ratio is 16 is to 9 Now it has changed as you can see. In the dimensions 5 4 7 2 into 3 6 4 it has changed so unless the larger image or the smaller image has the same aspect ratio. When you trim or reveal all the aspect ratio is bound to change. So those were a couple of tips about fitting your image to canvas. Just remember these few things number one, you can either drag and drop or go to file place embedded. Your image will resize automatically number 2 if it doesn’t resize automatically. If you don’t want the smart object or if you want the smart object to show, or if you want transformation to show or not show, you can press Ctrl-a command K to go to general preferences tab, or if you are a Windows user, you can go to edit preferences, general, if you are a Mac user, you can go to Photoshop preferences, and then general stab now number three. You can also use reveal all or trim. If you have a small image trim, if you have a big image, reveal all number four, always keep in mind that menu reveal all or trim your photo. Your aspect ratio can change. I hope this video helped, and if it did make sure to give us a like and also don’t forget to subscribe and not just subscribe. Ring the bell.
