Photoshop - Question regarding Preset options

New Here ,

The Situation: I was assigned to create two ads based on a skincare product and lipstick. Obviously, the platform that I will be using is Photoshop, we're not allowed to use Illustrator at all. My question is what kind of preset document would be best for these ads. The color mode would be RGB and it would be submitted online, so no printing the ads out on paper or anything. (I might use a billboard mockup psd to show an example of how the ad will look like but not sure yet). The photos of the products have two versions: RAW and JPEG. I will be using an image downloaded online (PNG) and screenshots of a YouTube video (JPEG) to use for the ad.

 

So between Web, Art & Illustration, and Photo, which preset would work best? Or does it not matter? I don't have that much experience or knowledge with the app so I'm not sure if there is a preset that works better for these types of projects. Most of what I tried searching up online where about saving files and not preset documents. If anyone can help out, I would greatly appreciate it 🙂

 

 

P.s.

I had an issue with the Photoshop I was using before, it kept saying my scratch disk was full or something? Anyways, I tried deleting files but it still wasn't working so I had to switch versions. Right now I'm using Ver 25.5

"The Situation: I was assigned to create two ads based on a skincare product and lipstick."

 

The variety of platforms and presets for different devices and placements is vast. The instructions provided are overly general. A detailed brief is necessary, including an explanation of the platform where the ads will be utilized and the required dimensions for the ads. There are multiple dimensions for rectangular and square ads, tailored for specific platforms and objectives.

@QandQ One point worth making is that RGB image files are best in the sRGB colorspace for distribution. There will come a day when a P3 ICC profile will more accurately describe the wide variety of devices an image might be viewed upon, but right now in 2024 : sRGB Color Space Profile is considered safest, with the ICC profile embedded in saved images. 

 

I hope this helps

It seems that you have multiple problems, starting with your inexperience at using Photoshop. Do you have any design training?

Photoshop doesn't really lean heavily on presets, it is a professional tool where you make the choices. It CAN be used for page design but I'd prefer doing this kind of work in Illustrator or InDesign.

You need to find out EXACTLY what the deliverables are, and work from there.

Finally, scratch disk issues are often a red flag for a computer that will have problems properly running graphics applications. Adobe has a help document about scratch disks:
