How do I start a new blank image page in Preview?

This is a workaround I use that suffices since I rarely use Preview, so there may be better options than this.

Typically, when creating a new image in image editing software you’ll be prompted for things such as resolution, background, etc. So I’ve created a bunch of default images I keep stored in a folder with descriptive filenames such as:

  • 500×500 transparent image
  • 500×500 white image
  • 500×1000 transparent image
  • and so on

On the rare occasion I have to start from scratch using Preview, I just open the image I need and do a Save As… (hold down the option as I click on the File menu or just use the optionshiftcommandS keyboard shortcut) and I’m good to go.
