I have several *.jpg product drawings to which I want to add text (e.g., product name). I open the image and the image drawing fills the space (canvas?). I want to 'pull down' the bottom border to allow inclusion of text.
Can this be done? I'm sure it can, but I'm lost.
Use the Image > Canvas (Ctrl Alt c or Cmd Opt c) command. If you want the extra space under the image, click on the center top tile, click to check the 'Relative' option, and choos a colour from the drop down at the bottom of the window. Just add as many pixels as you need, or pehaps go a bit more so you can crop to size after adding the text.
Tried.. worked great! As Bugs Bunny says.. "What a maroon!"
You don't need to learn it all at once. If you only learned one new trick a day, you'd be an expert before you knew it.
