Start Me Up: file browser essentials

Start Me Up: file browser essentials

Photographer | Carol Freeman


At first, you might not think that Photoshop’s File Browser deserves two chapters, but when you look at all the things it’s done for the community (including taking meals to other software applications that are less fortunate), you realize it probably does deserve them after all. Especially when you take into consideration the fact that the File Browser all by itself is probably more powerful than many stand-alone products, like the Whopper (that computer in the movie War Games with Matthew Broderick) or Microsoft Office 2000. Sure, the Whopper could simulate a Soviet First Strike, but frankly, it was pretty lame at sorting and categorizing your photos (as is Microsoft Office). In fact, I’m not sure the Whopper could sort or categorize photos at all, which is probably why no Photoshop book to date has a chapter on the Whopper. You’d think that with all the cool things the File Browser does, surely at least one Photoshop book out there would dedicate a chapter to it, right? Well, not as far as I’ve found. So I set out to do just that—really dig into the meat of the Browser, uncover its hidden power, and see once and for all if it was really written by a man named Professor Faulken (this is precisely why they shouldn’t let me write these chapter intros after 1:00 A.M.).
