Top 5 mis­takes

Art is all about learn­ing from mis­steps, but here are some mis­takes to avoid al­to­gether

Don’t put ev­ery lit­tle thing on dif­fer­ent lay­ers: it can slow down the process and the pro­gram. Try and be more ef­fi­cient… …but make sure you avoid merg­ing ev­ery­thing into one layer un­til you’re fairly cer­tain there are no more re­vi­sions. Mov­ing an ob­ject or character is a lot eas­ier when it’s on its own layer. Which layer was it that had the magic ring high­lights? Was it 406? Or 309 copy12? Se­ri­ously, name your files sen­si­bly and avoid in­ter­rupt­ing your paint­ing flow. An ex­tended paint­ing ses­sion can slow down Pho­to­shop. It’s all down to its vir­tual mem­ory us­age. So save your work, restart the pro­gram to free up this mem­ory and take a quick screen break. Work­ing on projects with a high res­o­lu­tion or ex­ces­sive lay­ers can also slow the pro­gram down, which will change the way some tools such as Smudge per­form. If you need the tool to run more smoothly, save as a new file and re­duce res­o­lu­tion tem­po­rar­ily.
