Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area > Previewing and opening another file

Previewing and opening another file

The next project involves a promotional postcard for a community project. You’ll use the File Browser again to preview the end file—which shows you what you’re aiming to do—and to open the start file.

1.
Select the File Browser button () on the tool options bar to open the File Browser.

2.
In the File Browser Folders palette, select the Lessons/Lesson01/Project2 folder.

3.
Select the 01End2.psd file in the thumbnails pane so that it appears in the Preview palette.

Examine the image and notice the text that is set against the cloud-like area across the lower part of the image.

You can drag the vertical bar that is between the thumbnails pane and the three palettes on the left to resize the areas. Drag it to the right to enlarge the image in the Preview palette to get a better look at the finished image. You can also drag the horizontal bars above and below the Preview palette to make it taller or shorter.


4.
Select the thumbnail for the 01Start2.psd file and open it in Photoshop, either by double-clicking the thumbnail or by choosing File > Open on the File Browser menu bar.

5.
Click the File Browser to bring it forward and then close it.
