Chapter 5. Using Adobe Photoshop CS2 > Customizing Your Interface

Customizing Your Interface

One of the features new to Photoshop CS2 is the capability to customize the user interface. With so many features for hundreds of different tasks, there are many different menus and commands to choose from when using Photoshop. If you work for a news media agency and aren't allowed to alter images using features such as the Vanishing Point filter, you might want to create a Photoshop environment that has less clutter.

Choose Edit, Menus to open the Keyboard Shortcuts and Menus dialog box. Clicking on the eyeball icon next to a menu command determines the visibility of that menu item (see Figure 5.8). Besides showing or hiding menu items, you can apply specific colors to each menu item. This is helpful if you want to make an item easier to find. Additionally, any changes you make to menu items are stored in custom workspaces. Adobe has included several workspaces that showcase this, including a very useful workspace called What's New in CS2 (see Figure 5.9). When chosen, the What's New in CS2 workspace highlights all of the features that are new in Photoshop CS2 (see Figure 5.10).
