Life in the Fast Lane: production tips > SAVING FILE BROWSER SETUPS

SAVING FILE BROWSER SETUPS

In Photoshop CS, your custom File Browser setups can be saved as Workspaces, which opens a new way of working within the File Browser. For example, if you shoot a lot of portraits, you can double-click on the Folders tab (to roll it up out of the way, giving you a taller Preview palette), then drag the divider bar between the palettes area and the thumbnail area to the right to make your preview even bigger. Since your preview is so large, you can shrink the size of your thumbnails (go to the View menu in the File Browser and choose Medium Thumbnail). Once you've done all this, save this setup as a Workspace by going to the Window menu, under Workspace, and choosing Save Workspace (name it “File Browser Portrait”). Then, next time you're looking through some proofs, you can have huge previews in just one click. You can do the same thing for wide photos-—just drag the divider bar much farther to the right, until the preview of photos with a landscape orientation takes up most of the File Browser Screen. Now switching between huge portrait and landscape previews only takes one click.
