Learn how to create a poster from template in Adobe Photoshop. See steps below.
1. Download practice files (https://adobe.ly/2lZUeNY). Or, use your own!
2. Click New from the left panel in Photoshop.
3. Download and open the poster template: Choose the Print category in the New Document window, scroll to find Indie Rock Newspaper, click it and select Download (first time use), then Open.
4. Click Resolve Fonts to download/synchronize the missing font to your computer, if necessary.
5. Replace headline text: Select the Text (T) tool. In the Layers panel, expand the Text layer group, expand the Headline layer group, click the INDIEROCK layer.

Drag the MainArtist.jpg file from your computer on to the canvas. If needed, drag the corner handles to fit the photo into the space and press Enter. Save and close the extra window.
