Okay, let's get started on our Footer. So we'll scroll down to the bottom of the document and we'll create a new layer and we'll call this Footer, press Enter and we'll select the Marquee Tool, again, by pressing M and we'll go ahead and create a Marquee. Say, may be, that's a little too much. I'll just hold Shift and Arrow key down, so that looks about right and we're going to press Ctrl+Backspace to fill it with some white color, okay. So that area is going to be our footer and, of course, it seems like a relatively large Footer area. So what you might want to do is, actually, crop the image at the end. But we are going to add our footer text and then we're done with our layout.
So we'll switch over to our Notepad again and we'll go ahead and select the footer text, we'll copy it, switch back to Photoshop, we'll press the T key to select the Text Tool and we'll just make a quick selection like so and that will be our text area that we're going to paste our footer text into, we'll press Ctrl+V and it's pasted to then, although the color is off, so we can go ahead and select it and change the Color from white all the way to black, we'll click OK, we'll make sure that it has a Regular Style and we'll also Center the text. We'll remove this extra bit of text and we'll move the Contact Us link down by pressing Shift+Enter and that looks pretty good, okay, and we'll press Ctrl+Enter to accept this and just use the Move Tool by pressing V and just move this up just a little bit, okay. So that looks pretty good.
We can go ahead and crop this image if we want to, but for the most part, it looks like we've got our Header, we've got our Navigation, our Flash Messaging Area, our Subfeatures area, the Video Player Place holder and our Sidebar.
