Hour 2. A Tour of the Desktop > Taking a Look at the Image Menu

Taking a Look at the Image Menu

The Image menu has the commands to do what I’d consider “physical” things to the picture. Turn it sideways, flip it, rotate a single layer or the whole image, distort it, make it bigger or smaller.... You get the idea.

Duplicate Image

The Duplicate Image command does not save a copy of the image. I want to be very clear about that. If you want to keep a copy of your picture, use Save As and check Save a Copy. Duplicate Image puts a temporary copy of the picture into RAM and in a window on the screen. (See Figure 2.11.) Use it to save a “before” version, so you can compare the updated image to the original as you retouch a badly damaged photo or experiment wildly. When you’re done, you can save the copy or not, as you wish.
