Working with Canvas Size

Many of us get confused with the Canvas Size feature - and not surprisingly as it is not clear what the 'canvas' refers to, in the context of your picture...

I prefer to think of Canvas Size as being the backing board to the photo. Straight off a camera this Canvas Size is the same size as the picture - so we don't see it, but increase the dimensions of the Canvas Size and it sticks out past the edges of the picture and becomes visible, and therefore becomes the effective border to the picture. Treat Canvas Size like a photo mounting board and you should get it. We can change the size and colour of this border as many times as we like for effect. Watch the video to see how...
