Key Concepts #
Starting with an Artboard #
The initial canvas is infinite so we need a fixed frame (representing a device screen) on which to work.
- Add an artboard.
- From the top-right choose preset dimensions (e.g. Desktop) or create custom.
- Rename your layer to something appropriate for the overall task, e.g. News Article.
