This hour is going to be a little different. We're going to kick back and explore some of the cool things you can do with the awesome tool known as Photoshop. Think of this hour as a collection of recipes—some special effects that you can add to your mental list of Photoshop tricks and use again and again, along with some timesaving tricks. You'll learn about extracting backgrounds, using stickies, and making contact sheets and picture packages. Just follow the steps, and you'll be a Photoshop wizard in no time.

Very detailed instructions will be given in this hour, and I'll use very specific settings along the way.

Different resolutions, sizes, and colors call for different settings. So when you see specifics, feel free to play with them a bit and see whether you can get even better results with your artwork.

Truly, that's the real secret of getting better and better at Photoshop: Never stop experimenting!
