Overview of basic functions of toolpic

1. Create and save

New: ctrl + n generally select the pixel unit, the resolution, and the color mode can be changed according to the needs
Save: Ctrl + s Save as: Ctrl + shift + s
Export E

Combine slices and cut images and store them in the format used by the Web (animation can also be exported)

Right-click export of commonly used layers

(1) Quickly export to PNG
(2) Export as (ctrl + shift + alt + w)
Choose several times the size of the picture, change the value, etc.
png transparent background image
jpg picture
GIF animation
SVG> photoshop repeated editing (rarely used)
Right-click the layer to export the cutting method

Right-click the shape layer to quickly export to png format

Right click to export as


Smaller files are checked, it will compress the size but does not affect the clarity of the picture


The size of the exported canvas will change the size of the graphics. It will not change: the size of the canvas will be determined according to the actual situation.

2. Photoshop graphics composition method

The picture shown is presented in a way of overlaying layers
(1) Shape layer, (2) Smart object layer, (3) Text layer, (4) Picture layer
ctrl +]: move the layer up one layer ctrl + [: move the layer down one layer ctrl + shift +]: put the layer on the top
3. Understanding of bitmap vector diagram

Bitmap: After zooming in, the pixel grid will have jagged edges

Vector diagram: zoom in and out will not change, the vector diagram shows a position of points and lines

25. (Boolean operation)

Conditions for Boolean operations

(1). Shapes must be used, (the smart object is displayed in the lower right corner of the layer)

(2). There must be more than two shapes with intersecting parts, and to merge, merge the layers: ctrl + e, you can do Boolean operation after merging the layers

Boolean operations can be used together with these three attributes

Shape combination attributes in photoshop

1. Path operation attributes


2. Alignment properties

The shape is regularized, aligned, distributed and integrated


3. Arrange the attributes

Change the internal position adjustment of the shape graphics


Use the shape tool and hold down the shift key to add a new shape (merge shape) to the shape layer

Hold down the Alt key to subtract a new shape from the shape layer (minus the top shape)

Black and Boolean operations are used together: Black (CTRL + T): You can move the merged layer of two or more shapes to the layer in it, you can change the size, rounded corners, and color independently.

Shape tool “small black tool” hold down the alt key “to copy graphics in the same layer Ctrl + c, paste the layer Ctrl + v, change-change graphics Ctrl + t” can be aligned operation

You can also select the desired graphics in the merged layer ctrl + e, and ctrl + j to copy a part of the desired layer.
