Getting started

You’ll start the lesson by viewing the final Lesson file, to see what you’ll accomplish.

1.
Start Photoshop and then immediately hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS) to restore the default preferences. (See “Restoring default preferences” on page 4.)

As messages appear, select Yes to confirm that you want to reset preferences, No to defer setting up your color monitor, and Close to close the Welcome Screen.

2.
On the tool options bar, select the File Browser button (), and use the Folders palette to navigate to and select the Lessons/Lesson12 folder on your hard disk.

3.
In the thumbnails palette, select the 12End.psd file, so that it appears in the Preview palette in the File Browser.

This end file is a montage that is comprised of four pictures. Each quadrant has had a specific filter or effect applied to it.

4.
In the File Browser, select the 12End_copy.psd thumbnail.

This copy of the end file is a version of the same montage that has been partially flattened and adjusted in color so that the four quadrants have similar color schemes.

Leave the File Browser open.
