Chapter 1. Tool and Palette Primer > Preparing Your Workspace

Preparing Your Workspace

Before we get into functionality, we'll talk about how to control the prodigious profusion of palettes. But first, a word of advice: No matter how many times you feel like nuking a palette when it's in your way, no matter how many times your screen turns into a blinding jumble of annoying little boxes, just remember that you can organize the clutter into an elegant arrangement in just a few seconds.

Controlling Those Palettes

The first order of business is to get you enough space to work effectively with your images. We'll accomplish this by organizing the palettes so that they don't obstruct your view of your document. I don't think you'll like the default position of the palettes—that is, unless you use a 36-inch screen. The palettes take up too much valuable screen real estate (Figure 1.1).
