Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area

Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area


As you work with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady, you'll discover that there is often more than one way to accomplish the same task. To make the best use of the extensive editing capabilities in these programs, you first must learn to navigate the work area.


In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Open an Adobe Photoshop file.

  • Select tools from the toolbox.

  • Use viewing options to enlarge and reduce the display of an image.

  • Work with palettes.

  • Use online Help.

This lesson will take about 60 minutes to complete. The lesson is designed to be done in Adobe Photoshop, but information on using similar functionality in Adobe ImageReady is included where appropriate.

Before starting Adobe Photoshop, locate the Lesson01 folder on the Adobe Photoshop 6.0 Classroom in a Book CD, and copy the folder onto your hard drive. As you work on this lesson, you'll overwrite the start files. If you need to restore the start files, copy them from the Adobe Photoshop Classroom in a Book CD.

Before beginning this lesson, restore the default application settings for Adobe Photoshop. See "Restoring default preferences".

Note

Windows users need to unlock the lesson files before using them. For more information, see "Copying the Classroom in a Book files".
