Hour 1. The Basics > What's on the Menus?

What's on the Menus?

The menus across the top of the screen contain the commands that enable you to open and manipulate files. They are accessed just as you would access any other menu, by clicking to open the menu and choosing the desired command from the list. Whenever you see an arrow or an ellipsis to the right of a menu command, it indicates that there is either a submenu, in the case of the arrow, or a dialog box, in the case of the ellipsis.

File and Edit Menus

The first two menus are File and Edit. Photoshop's File and Edit menus will be mostly familiar to anyone who has used other Macintosh or Windows programs. The File menu lets you work with files: opening, closing, saving, importing and exporting, printing, and, of course, quitting the program. There are also several time-saving automation features that you'll learn about in Hour 18, “Special Effects and Useful Tricks.”
