Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area > Using Adobe online services

Using Adobe online services

Another way to get information about Adobe Photoshop or other Adobe products is to use the Adobe online services. If you have an Internet connection and a Web browser installed on your system, you can access the U.S. Adobe Systems Web site (www.adobe.com) for information on services, products, and tips pertaining to Photoshop.

In Photoshop or ImageReady, choose Help > Adobe Online, or click the icon () (Photoshop) or () (ImageReady) at the top of the toolbox.

Choose Edit > Preferences > Adobe Online (Windows) or Photoshop > Preferences > Adobe Online (Mac OS) and enter the preferences you want to use.

When you set up Adobe Online to connect to your Web browser, Adobe can either notify you whenever new information is available or automatically download that information to your hard disk. If you choose not to use the Adobe automatic download feature, you can still view and download new files whenever they are available from within the Adobe Online window.

If you use Netscape as your Web browser, click the bookmark button () in the Adobe Online dialog box to view Web pages related to Photoshop and Adobe. These bookmarks are automatically updated as new Web pages become available.

Click Close to return to Photoshop or ImageReady.

Using Adobe Online, you can find information specifically on Photoshop and ImageReady, including tips and techniques, galleries of artwork by Adobe designers and artists around the world, the latest product information, and troubleshooting and technical information. Or, you can learn about other Adobe products and news.

Congratulations again; you’ve finished Lesson 1.
