Appendix A: Photoshop Tools Reference - Pg. 141

141 Appendix A. Photoshop Tools Reference Photoshop 6 has a full set of tools with many options for each. Here's a list of each tool and its functions. The tools are listed in order of how they appear on the toolbar. Some of the tool descriptions in the following sections are taken with permission from the Adobe Help feature that accompanies Photoshop 6. Using The Tool Options Bar Most tools have options that are displayed in the new tool options bar that appears at the top of the screen.. The options bar is context-sensitive and changes as different tools are selected. Some settings in the options bar are common to several tools (such as painting modes and opacity), and some are specific to one tool (such as the Auto Erase setting for the pencil tool). You can move the options bar anywhere in the work area; you can dock it at the top or bottom of the screen.
