Task 3 How to Use the Menu Bars

The menu bars in Photoshop and ImageReady operate like the menu bars in any other application. Click the menu name so that the menu drops down; then click any option to select it. Select an option that has a solid right-facing arrowhead, and a submenu pops out. Select an option that has a three-dot ellipsis (…) following it, and a dialog box opens. This task looks at the grouping of the various menus to help you understand the functionality associated with each one.

1. The Photoshop File Menu

You use the Photoshop File menu to address the basic opening, closing, and saving of files. This menu covers the import/export of files, workflow management and automated tasks, as well as page setup and print options. It also contains the Exit command (Quit on the Mac) for closing the application. Note: Photoshop for Mac OS X features a Photoshop menu that includes the Preferences, Hide, and Quit commands.
