Chapter 1. The Basics > Menus, tools, and palettes

Menus, tools, and palettes

The Photoshop Elements work area may look familiar if you’ve used other Adobe products. Adobe has worked hard to maintain a consistent interface across its software product lines—so if you’ve ever used Adobe Photoshop, you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t have to learn your way around a whole new program; Photoshop Elements retains much of the look and feel of its bigger, more powerful cousin.

The menu bar offers drop-down menus for performing common tasks, editing images, and organizing your work area. Each menu is organized by topic. For example, the File menu offers commands for opening, importing, saving, and batch processing your images (Figure 1.4).
