Now in next option set value of resolution, keep in mind this feature is significant and I’ve already told you most of the times that without this you can’t produce high-quality pixels cover. So be care full and put the resolution value always good; I’ve fixed resolution 500 Pixels / Inches. This is enough large, but it will give HD graphics results. After that pick the color mode as RGB 8 bit and Background Contents As White. It’s mean you want to work on a white sheet with 8bit basic colors Red, Green, Blue.

Step 2: Fill The Layer Background

After unlocking the layer now change the BG Color of the white sheet. For this purpose, you must choose a color from the Color Picker (Foreground) window. You can select your favorite color no issue, but here I’ve picked color #f6ed58. Pick up the Paint Bucket Tool and do a single click on the sheet. The white blank sheet will be turned colorful.

After adding the second circle now drag this layer Ellipse 2 before Ellipse 1 in Layer Panel.
