File Browser

Photoshop's File Browser is a great way to open and organize your images. With it, you'll be able to view thumbnail size previews of your images, sort and rotate them, and apply a variety of automated features. I no longer choose Image > Open to access the files on my hard drive. Instead, I choose File > Browse, or type Shift-Command-O (Mac) or Shift-Ctrl-O (Windows) to access the File Browser (or click on the new File Browser icon on the far right of the options bar). As if Photoshop 7's File Browser wasn't good enough, Adobe went ahead and redesigned it for Photoshop CS (Figure 1.120). The new File Browser has its own menu bar built right into the top of the dialog box and is organized into four panes, three across the left side and one on the right. The left side is divided into tabbed “palettes” that act much like the normal palettes in Photoshop. You can drag the name of a tab onto another palette grouping to include that palette in the group. You can double-click on a tab to collapse that area so it takes up minimal space, and you can drag the dividing bar between palettes to control how much space one area takes up as compared to the others.
