Photoshop would benefit greatly from multiple page support...perhaps supporting multi-page TIFFs or similar. Or at the very least, the ability to 'link' multiple art files into a manageable sequence. As broadcast designers this feature would assist our production process dramatically...and I can think of a number of other applications.

Photoshop is an image editor... I doubt it would change...
Even tough Illustrator is a vector editor and got multiple art boards...

If you have multiple elements that would want to see linked, take a look at the links smart object panel from this close idea: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

The issue with multipage tiff is that it is not a standard, it might just not show in many applications that do not support them...

Photoshop is also often used as UI design editor (web design, mobile design), especially after firework's exclusion out of CC. Please, dont look on this topsided. There is on the photoshop.com at least every 2nd ps user is a designer, not photographer.

Panel is a temporary solution. It may not work in next versions, it may not be installed at your colleague's photoshop etc.

composition of pages is very appalling.
would have incredible power in multipage photoshop.
It would be a great feature. Very useful to have a larger space. If that were very difficult could put more space around canvas and Illustrator. We've all dreamed of multipage in Photoshop.

please, please, multipage panel in Photoshop CC.
instead of tabs, pages.

add video editing and not productive multipage documents. I do not understand.
Multipage is a great characteristic to order a web project.
The only resemblance is the composition panel layer, which is appalling and not productive.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Photoshop: Pages Support like Fireworks.


With Fireworks officially being discontinued other than security bugs for now, one of the main features of Fireworks is the ability to have Pages (and Master Pages).

It's a great feature as I can design an entire website multiple templates in one file, and the file is usually very small. Well under a MB. Where is my counter part designers do the exact same site but of course save each page as a separate PSD and each are very large files.

Photoshop does have a feature called Comps... which some have attempted to try to hack as a Pages alternative for now, however that is meant for working on one page, that it slightly different. For instance one template but having multiple comps, each with a different header color for instance.

Adding the Fireworks Pages feature would be great however the only problem is since it doesn't currently exist I'm not sure how it would be backwards compatible. And being able to have Pages won't help if when I give the file to other designers/coders or client and they are unable to open it since they don't have the very latest Photoshop version. A possible solution would be having Pages but then have a legacy export option which would automatically export all pages into separate files for the client/other coders. And at least the original would have the benefit of being in one file and sharing elements in the master page.

if the user does not have Photoshop CC 2, each page is opened as a psd.

Without going back in time and changing the code for older versions of Photoshop, that would not be possible.

anything is possible. 3d (impossible? NO), video (it was impossible? NO), multipage (like fireworks.'s Impossible No, easier than 3d and video). Do not put walls. Open your mind.

I congratulate the team adobe add artboards. It is one of the best features this program. Thank you.

Although you can improve the productivity of this tool:
-master artboard (for recurring elements). Rather than duplicate smart objects on each page.
-Support for pages at 300dpi. (Sometimes we have a business card, web pages 8 and a poster). Having everything in one file would be incredible.
