Hour 1. The Basics > Setting Preferences

Setting Preferences

As you become more familiar with Photoshop, you might want to change the ways it handles certain tasks. You might want to use the System Color Picker instead of the Photoshop version. You might decide to measure in inches for one project and centimeters for another. You might need to change the color of the guides because they're too much like the background in your photo. All these changes and many more are made in the Preferences dialog box, which is now accessible under the Photoshop menu in the current Mac OS X version (in Windows, it's still accessed via the Edit menu). The General Preferences dialog box is shown in Figure 1.15.

Figure 1.15. Set preferences here.
