Upload & manage Layers in Artwork

Create a new Artwork

Go to Artworks page, click on + New artwork button to open Artwork editor.

The New artwork from PSD button is for users who want to import a photoshop file to create an artwork. This feature will convert each groups of layers in the psd file into a template in artwork. If you don't want that, you can click on "+ New artwork" and upload psd inside Artwork editor, then all groups are uploaded as layers in one template.

Upload Layers

In Artwork editor
click on Image button to start uploading images
click on PSD button to uploading PSD file
or click on Add Text to write text.
The layers will show up in Layers list on the left.

However, for personalizable layers, you should upload the layer images one by one, not through psd file, to maintain the image ratio.

We do NOT recommend to upload the whole PSD file because:
Photoshop will trim the empty space of a layer by default, making its shape and ratio different.
Example: a Dog layer in Square shape, with empty space around, will be trimmed to rectangle shape which fits the dog's shape. It creates a different ratio from the original layer, and leads to incorrect re-position of personalized cliparts (if other cliparts are in square shape).

If your PSD file contain text and you want to add it as a personalized text layer, you should click convert text. Learn more about the text layer here
