How to draw a new artboard in Photoshop

Want to draw a new artboard inside Photoshop?

Artboards are one of the coolest features inside Photoshop, and a great way to manage multiple projects inside a single Photoshop file. While artboards are not the default setting in Photoshop, being able to create and work with them will help you become a more efficient and better designer.

You can draw a new artboard within an existing project using the Crop Tool.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open your Photoshop project file
  2. Select Crop Tool (C)
  3. Click-and-drag to create a new artboard on the background canvas

Make sure that your project is already set to Artboards (Layer > New > Artboard) or the Crop Tool will just crop your existing project.
