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.

On the tool options bar, select the File Browser button, and use the Folders palette to navigate to and select the Lessons/Lesson05 folder on your hard disk.

3.
In the thumbnails palette, select the 05End.psd file, so that it appears in the Preview palette in the File Browser.

Select the 05Start.psd file and compare it to the 05End file.
