Non-displaying objects in illustrator and photoshop
So I'm trying to set up templates for other designers to use to adhere to design guidelines, and I want to know if there is any way to specify objects in illustrator and photoshop that do not show up when the image is exported or printed. I know it is possible to make non-printing objects in photoshop, however I would like the objects not to show up when using save for web or exporting a pdf/eps also.
- Create a new layer
- Add stuff to layer you want visible, but not exported
- Go to View > Guides > Make Guides
This outlines everything in a new color, locks the layer, and doesn't save for web or export.
Photoshop: There isn't anything like the guide layer in Photoshop. However, you can add notes:
- Click and hold on Eyedropper tool to expand sub-menu.
- Select Note Tool
- Click on screen and enter a note.
