The New Document dialog
If you’ve updated Photoshop to CC 2017, you will have noticed a fairly big change in the New Document dialog box. (You can learn how to create new Photoshop documents with the new Start Screen here).
Some long-time Photoshop users are finding the new New Document dialog box to be a bit clunky and would prefer to get back to the streamlined “old school” version where you just type in the dimensions and resolution you want, without wading through presets and templates.
Here’s how you can change back to the more familiar dialog box.
- On the mac, choose Photoshop CC > Preferences > General (shortcut is Cmd + K)
On the pc, choose Edit > Preferences > General (shortcut is Ctrl + K)
- Click in the checkbox beside Use Legacy “New Document” Interface to enable it.
- Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box and next time you create a new document, you’ll see the more familiar legacy New Document dialog box.
- If you decide at a later time that you would like the new New document dialog back again, just go back into the same option in Preferences and uncheck it.
Hope you find that useful 🙂
