Lesson 6. Layer Basics > Getting started

Getting started

You’ll start the lesson by viewing an image of the final composition.

1.
Start Photoshop and then immediately hold down Ctrl-Alt-Shift (Windows) or Command-Option-Shift (Mac OS) to restore the default preferences. (See “Restoring default preferences” on page 6.)

2.
When prompted, click Yes to confirm that you want to reset preferences, and Close to close the Welcome Screen.

3.
Click the Go to Bridge button () on the tool options bar to open Adobe Bridge.

4.
In the Favorites palette, click Lessons, then double-click to open the Lesson06 folder, and select the 06End.psd file to preview it.

This layered composite represents the cover of a scrapbook. You will create it now, and in doing so, learn how to create, edit, and manage layers.

5.
Select the 06Start.psd file and double-click it to open it in Photoshop.
