Quick Tip #9: Creating Notes

Notes can be found everywhere!  We write them on index cards, scraps of paper, or Sticky Notes.  We place them on our refrigerators, bulletin boards, computer monitors, and even the dashboard of our cars.  Notes help us remember important dates, events, or appointments.  (Remember me? The Queen of Sticky Notes?)

But what about when you are working in Photoshop and need to remember something important?  Like the due date of a layout, or designer credits that you will need when you post to your gallery?

“Notes” can help!  Yes! There are Notes in Photoshop!  I have found Notes to be an invaluable tool, and they are so easy to use.

In Photoshop, select the Note Tool on the toolbox.  It is in the drop down box when you select the Eye Dropper Tool.

Click on the active document to create a blank Note (the little yellow pad and pencil) and a Notes window will open.  Simply type the information you would like to remember about your document.

You may right click on the Note icon to close, delete, or open any notes.

Save your document as a PSD or TIFF file and your notes will be saved.

If you find the Note distracting while you work, simply expand your canvas and drag it off to the side.

Notes may be added in Photoshop.  In Photoshop Elements you may view and delete notes, but you may not add them.

I love using Notes, and it has saved me a ton of money on all of the Sticky Notes I was buying too!

Using PSE – under File, you can choose ‘File Info’ and add tons of notes about your photos or layouts. :)

Thanks for letting us know, Connie! I’m not a PSE user, so was unaware of that!
