Today I’m going to teach you how to create an iPad background image in Adobe Photoshop. Before we get started, the first thing you need to do is find out what generation iPad you will be loading the background on.
Some iPads have the retina display and others do not. Knowing whether your iPad has the retina display will determine what template you use to set up the background. This will allow you to perfectly set up the image so it looks great in both portrait and landscape orientations.
*For a quick reference, the iPad 1, iPad 2, and iPad Mini (1st Gen) do NOT have the retina display. Every other iPad does.
