Why doesn't photoshop have, like every other app, the standard UI for multipage/frame workflows? Instead it seems to sacrifice layers for frames, or vice versa. Artboards are an even bigger mess in their sloppy attempt to make up for it.

 

Please, can we just get the same basic multi page/frame layout that every other app uses? If Photoshop indeed has the ability to do this (it doesn't) then just make it a view option - simple as that. Otherwise, if it's not that easy to set up - it's broken and needs these features. This isn't 1997. We're not saving to zip drives. Let us decide how big of files our machines can handle in pref's. For now, just give us the standardized formatting we need. Layers AND Pages/frames. Thank you.

Hi

Photoshop, at its core, is an image editor. It is not a layout progam; we have InDesign for that. Might I ask why you want pages? Maybe there is something we can suggest if we know what you are trying to do.

Photoshop is an image editor at it's core, but it's still the defacto sketching and painting tool of choice. Thankfully more options are arising to fill the gaps Adobe seems ininterested in serving.

 

The reason Photoshop could use a sketchbook format is similar to how One Note is structured. It makes sense to have dedicated sketchbooks to a particular topic (Travel sketching, Project A, Project B, etc). Not all artists are going to spend a lot of time on a single page/file, many are rapid sketching ideas and it greatly reduces redundancy not to have to constantly wrangle individual files, risk overwriting the ones you did in a similar folder, juggle between pshop and bridge, or any other number of workflows that are more complicated than simply clicking a plus icon for 'new page'. One of the appeals of something like a .fla file is that you sketch and manage all your creations in one single file. 

 

Artstudio Pro has a really nice thumbnail preview at the top for example which would be ideal if those files were bundled as one file, not simply a thumbnail preview of 'recent files'.
