adob photoshop notes class 4
2. You can also enlarge/diminish some of the palettes by dragging in their edges.
3. When the mouse catches a corner, the cursor changes and you can can drag in that:
4. Try to drag Color out from the palette. Drag with the mouse in the palette itself:
5. Drag color out and release it outside the original palette. That gives a new palette:
6. Drag the color palette back in place behind the color chart. That can be a tease, since you might think that the palette needs to be pulled back to the same location from where you removed it. That is not the case; you just release it in the bottom of the palette, and then it jumps into place.
7. You might be able to drag individual palettes up into the gray field in the far right of the settings line (Palette Well), where you already see File Browser and Brushes, which we will cover later in the booklet. Apparently this area is only seen in pc's with screen resolutions of 1024 x 768 and higher:
Attachment 3948. Fortunately Photoshop can manage to place the palettes in the right side. Choose menu items Window --> Workspace --> Reset:
9. The individual palettes can thus be parked in many places. But wait to use these options until you are more familiar with the program.
You will soon be working with both tools and palettes; but here you just need to notice the palettes behaviour. Photoshop is a large program with advanced functions hidden here and there in the palettes.
Figure 7. Selected palettes can be parked in the Palette Well (but only if you have a high screen resolution).
Hide all palettes
If you temporarily want to hide all palettes to get more elbow room for your work, that is easily done:
1. Press the Tab key, then the palettes disappear (including the tool box).
2. Repeat that action, and the palettes are back in their place. That is neat.
You can also activate the palettes individually with the function keys, as shown in figure 8. The palettes can also be shown/hidden by using the Window menu (see figure 9).
Palette : F5
Brushes (in Palette Well, close with Escape) : F6
Layer : F8
Info : F9
Actions : Tab
All : Shift+Tab
All except the tool box and settings line
Figure 8. The palettes can be turned on/off with the function keys.
Now you need to work with the program. For the first couple of exercises we chose to have you make a couple of drawings.
Actually the paint tools are not the most important in Photoshop œ there are many other and better drawing programs Ã¢â‚¬â€œ but the following exercises are quite good for a starter and to get acquainted with the user interface.
NOTE: In the first few exercises we give very detailed explanations of the subject matter. Later in the booklet our instructions will be a little briefer; but we want to get you off to a good start!
Figure 9. The Window menu controls the showing o the tool box and the four palettes. There is a lot to keep track of!
