Hour 1. The Basics > Tool Options Bar

Tool Options Bar

In my opinion, the new-in-version-6 Tool Options bar, is one of the best additions to Photoshop. Previously, tool options were found on a palette usually buried behind two others. The bar keeps your tool options available at all times. The bar changes according to the tool you select. The different items on the bar have pull-down menus that let you set the options for that tool. Figure 1.8 shows the Brush Tool Options bar, with the brush shapes menu open.
