Getting started

Before you start working on files, take a few moments to make sure that your work area and palettes are set up to match the illustrations shown for these projects.

1.
Start Photoshop Elements in Standard Edit mode, either by selecting Edit And Enhance Photos in the Welcome screen as you start Photoshop Elements, or, if Organizer is already open, by clicking the Edit button () and choosing Go To Standard Edit.

2.
Use the Standard Edit () and Quick Fix () buttons to switch back and forth between these modes. Compare your Palette Bin arrangements to the illustrations below.

Palette Bin for Standard Edit mode, and for Quick Fix mode

In Standard Edit, you want only the Layers, Styles And Effects, Navigator, and Undo History palettes—the order is not important. In Quick Fix, expand any collapsed palettes by clicking the arrow beside the palette name on the palette title bar.

Note

For instructions on how to add or remove palettes from the Standard Edit Palette Bin, see “Using the Palette Bin” on page 59. (You can’t add or remove palettes for Quick Fix mode.)

Now your Palette Bins are set up in both modes for the work you’ll do in this lesson. In some procedures, you’ll use Quick Fix mode and in others you’ll use Standard Edit mode, so it’s convenient to set them up ahead of time in the way you’ll want them.
