Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area > Starting to work in Adobe Photoshop

Starting to work in Adobe Photoshop

The Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady work areas include the command menus at the top of your screen and a variety of tools and palettes for editing and adding elements to your image. You can also add commands and filters to the menus by installing third-party software known as plug-in modules.

Both Photoshop and ImageReady work with bitmapped, digitized images (that is, continuous-tone images that have been converted into a series of small squares, or picture elements, called pixels). In Photoshop, you can also work with vector graphics, which are drawings made up of smooth lines that retain their crispness when scaled. In ImageReady, you can create moving elements, such as animations and rollovers, for on-screen viewing.
