Hour 1. The Basics > What's on the Menus?

What's on the Menus?

The menus across the top of the screen contain the commands that allow you to open and manipulate files. They are accessed just as you would access any other menu, by clicking to open the menu and selecting the desired command from the list. Whenever you see an arrow or an ellipsis off to the right of a menu command, it indicates that there is either a subcommand, in the case of the arrow, or a dialog box, in the case of the ellipsis.

File and Edit Menus

The first two menus are File and Edit. Photoshop's File and Edit menus hold no surprises for anyone who has used any other Macintosh or Windows program. The File menu lets you work with files: opening, closing, saving, exporting, and printing them, and, of course, quitting the program. The Edit menu includes all the editing commands you're familiar with from other applications: Cut, Copy, Paste, Clear, and the most important one—Undo.
