Chapter 2. Jumping In with the Basics > Task: Learning the Basics

Task: Learning the Basics

Most of this chapter is spent showing you how to move through Photoshop and deal with its basic features, palettes, creating text, and things you absolutely have to know in order to work in Photoshop effectively. Then we draw the fundamental shapes and text needed for StichStyle magazine. Check out Appendix A to see every tool in the toolbox and a description of their abilities. It's a long first chapter, but there is a lot to cover in the basics. First go to the book's Web site and download the images from Chapter 2.

We refer to the word “image” many times in this book. We are referring to anything you create using Photoshop as an image. We also refer to the actual object you are working with in a particular exercise as an image also. Some may call these documents, but since we are working with a visual medium, let's call them images.
