Hour 1. The Basics > The Toolbox

The Toolbox

The toolbox, like an artist's work table or paint box, holds all the tools you'll use to draw, paint, erase, and otherwise work on your picture. If you've used a previous edition of Photoshop, you're in for a few surprises. Some of the tools have changed locations, and gained new capabilities, and there are some very nifty new ones. For this new release, Adobe has even redesigned the tool icons so they change color when you roll over them. There are four categories of tools in Photoshop's toolbox:

  • Selection tools

  • Painting tools

  • Path, Text, and Shape tools

  • Viewing tools
