When you’re working in Adobe Premiere Pro, you may need a new Photoshop file for a text layer or a new still photo. Adobe Premiere Pro offers a useful shortcut that makes it easy to keep your project organized and preserve file compatibility.

  1. In Adobe Premiere Pro, click in the timeline for an active project. This specifies which settings to use.
  2. Choose File > New > New Photoshop File.
  3. A new dialog box opens and self-populates with the dimensions, editing timebase, and pixel aspect ratio of the selected sequence.
  4. Click OK to create the file. A file services dialog box opens. Give it a unique name and store the file in your project’s folder.
  5. In Photoshop, modify the file as needed, and then close and save. When you switch back to Adobe Premiere Pro, the file is automatically updated in the Project panel.
