I would love to be able to create document templates in photoshop. Take banners of certain sizes. Would be ace to be able to open photoshop and open a template i Have made for certain banners.

So when I save a document I can save it as a template in a specific template folder. 

This would save me a fair bit of time hunting for template each time I want to make a new doc.

If you have reliable internet, I would recommend looking at using the cloud "Libraries". You can make a general templates library, then open those templates from your cloud and save-as your working copy locally. You can also share that template library with other users as "view-only" if you need someone else to use your templates.
A library "graphic" is really just a PSD or PSB that's saved in the cloud...

This is essentially how the new "new file" templates from Adobe Stock work. Would be slick to have our own custom templates that were saved in a specific library be included in the "new file" ui.

I was all excited for the new templates, but I don't see any way to "publish" your own private templates to AS or to make local templates so.... meh?

Yea, my sentiments exactly. I expected a powerful custom template ui, but nope.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop: New from template.

Being able to open a new document from a base document template would speed up production and efficiency a great deal for people like me who are constantly creating projects which use the same layout, layers and content but with different designs. Right now I have to open my template, then save it as a new project, but if I could just click new ->from template->list of templates, I would be able to skip a few steps.
