In addition, make sure that you have enough memory allocated to complete this lesson. For more information, see “Copying the Advanced Classroom in a Book files” on page 3.

You’ll start the lesson by viewing the final Lesson file to see the image that you will create.

Restart Adobe Photoshop. If a notice appears asking whether you want to customize your color settings, click No.

Choose File > Open, and open the 04End.psd file, located in the Lessons/Lesson04/04PSD folder on your hard drive. In the Embedded Profile Mismatch dialog box, select Use the Embedded Profile (Instead of the Working Space), and click OK. (For more information, see “Opening a file with an embedded profile” on page 87.)

When you have finished viewing the file, either leave the End file open on your desktop for reference, or close it without saving changes.
