Photoshop edit walkthrough

No need to be a Photoshop expert! We'll walk you through the simple steps below.

 

  1. When you download the package for the first time, it looks like this. The file type included in your download is a .zip. Use a native file extraction tool or supported software found online to open/view this file. In this example, we're using WinRAR which can be downloaded for free on their website.




  2. Next, right click > Extract here.




  3. Once the files are extracted, your file structure should look like this:





  4. Next, select the “PSDs” folder. From here, you'll see all editable Photoshop files that are available for your design.




  5. Start by opening up all of the PSD files you wish to edit. Once opened head over to whichever PSD file you wish to edit first. For example the "Header.PSD" file.




  6. To edit your username double click the "T" next to the username text layer and type in your username.

    NOTE: If you received an error message regarding missing font, close the files and install the font listed at the beginning of this guide.




  7. To edit the background glow simply open up the folder and double click on the icon that is highlighted in the above image.
