Default Photoshop Flyer Size?

Hi everyone.

I am having a difficult time finding the appropriate size for a flyer for Photoshop.

I want this flyer to take up an entire page (NO LESS NO MORE). Even me saying it's a flyer doesn't matter...I'm just not sure of the width and length in pixels of what an entire page would be for my flyers.

Thanks!

Well in this case, instead of creating a document in pixels you would create the document in inches by height and width. So the paper you are printing on, you need to measure it, and then match your document size in PS by going to file>new> change the width and height options from pixels to inches and match the inches to the paper. Walla, your good to go!

What's the purpose of the flyer? Kinda makes a difference in it's design.
It's pretty typical to design at a high print resolution and size to create a master then output it to various intended purposes. Do you need bleed and trimming?
3mm is a typical bleed.

8.5" by 11" would be 612px by 792px at a resolution of 72px per inch. (web)
8.5" by 11" would be 2550px by 3300px at a resolution of 300px per inch. (print)

Here is a free example psd flyer at 300dpi CMYK

Ok, then this tightens up the requirements quite a bit.
Print work requires more attention to detail.
Typically 300dpi and CMYK (not RGB).
Since this will be print work, one of the best things to do is browse the online print shops and look at their requirements for bleed lines, cut lines, etc...
You have to have these.
I like to have my workflow for print work start in photoshop(or illustrator/fireworks, depends) then end in indesign.

If you want jagged, unattractive text, go ahead and use Photoshop to do a print flyer.

Photoshop is, as its name implies, a tool to manipulate photos - not vector-based artwork like text.

If you MUST use photoshop, do it in two documents - one for the pixel-based design elements, and another for text. 300dpi is enough for the photos, but set up the text document to be at least 1200 dpi, 2400 dpi if your machine will handle a document that big without slowing to a crawl. The high dpi of the text document will reduce jaggies in your text.

If you want to do it right, use InDesign or Illustrator.

I would Suggest Adobe Illustrator for Flyer Design as A designer I always use AI for my print work...
Secondly the Ideal size which vista print accept is 8.5"x11"

You don't need a vector format for printing a raster image. Vectors only help when increasing the size of an image that's already in a vector format (eps, svg, etc...).
