Chapter 1. The Basics > Understanding the Work Area

Understanding the Work Area

The Photoshop Elements work area is designed to make the tools easy to find and use. Just as with a well-organized workbench, the menus, palettes, and tools are intuitively arranged in a way that makes them easy to find where and when you need them.

The Welcome screen

When you first start Photoshop Elements, the Welcome screen automatically appears on your desktop (Figure 1.1). Think of this screen as a handy launching pad for creating or opening new files, pasting contents from the clipboard, or acquiring images from a digital camera or scanner. The Welcome screen also includes links to common issues and tutorials. But if you find the display of this screen annoying, simply click the Exit Welcome Screen button at the bottom of the screen to shoo it away.
