How to rearrange artboards in Photoshop

Want to move artboards around in Adobe Photoshop?

While artboards are not the default option in Photoshop, they are still a great way to manage larger projects with multiple components or variations of the same layout. Using artboards in Photoshop is a little different than in Illustrator, but the same basic process applies.

In this mini tutorial I will show you the basics of rearranging and moving artboards around in the Photoshop Document Window.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open your Adobe Photoshop project file
  2. If you don’t already have artboards setup, do so be converting your canvas to an artboard using the Layer > New > Artboard option from the top Menu Bar
  3. With the Move Tool (V), select the artboard you want to move by clicking right at the edge of the artboard
  4. Then, just drag-and-drop to move the artboard anywhere inside the document window workspace
