I typed my cv in a word processor. It is 2 pages long. I have also created a photoshop design using the A4 dimensions.

I have noticed that not only do I need two pages but also it would help the design in the canvas was slightly bigger.

Can you recommend me what canvas sizes are most appropriate for a photoshoped cv, and also how would I go about exporting two pages into pdf - do I create two photoshop files and somehow join them as one pdf?

I think you'd be far better served by designing your CV in the word processor, InDesign, Illustrator, or pretty much anything that's not Photoshop. :D It's not really intended for this task. –  Marc Edwards Feb 17 '13 at 9:32
    
@MarcEdwards thanks for the suggestion, I figured out how to add 2 pages in illustrator. Thanks a lot. –  aurel Feb 17 '13 at 9:44

@MarcEdwards Could you post this as an answer? It looks like it was useful to the OP, and we would avoid ending up with an unanswered question. –  Yisela Feb 19 '13 at 21:59

I think you'd be far better served by designing your CV in the word processor, InDesign, Illustrator, or pretty much anything that's not Photoshop. It's not really intended for this task.

Some suggestions, assuming the end result is going to be a PDF:

  • Adobe InDesign.
  • Adobe Illustrator.
  • Apple Pages.
  • Apple TextEdit (yep, it's actually really powerful and already on your Mac!).
  • Microsoft Word.
  • Many other page layout or word processing apps.

If you have several pages that you want to join to form a single PDF, Apple's free Automator can do it (already in your Applications folder). If you're using Windows, I bet there's easy ways to do it as well.
