Navigating to Your Photos Using the File Browser

The Browser is divided into two main areas: the main window, which displays thumbnail versions of your photos (once you find them) and the Palette area. The palettes include one for navigating to your photo, one that shows a larger preview of your currently selected thumbnail, and one that lets you see information about the currently selected photo. We’ll start with the Navigation palette (after all, if you can’t find your photos, the rest of the File Browser will look pretty, um...blank.)

Navigating to your photos: The left side of the File Browser is the Palette area (although they’re palettes, they’re not “floating palettes” like the rest of the palettes in Photoshop CS, because they have to stay within the File Browser). The top-left palette (called Folders) gives you direct access to the photos on your digital camera’s memory card, on your hard drive, on a CD of images, a network drive—you name it. The idea behind this is simple: It gives you access to your digital-camera images without having to leave Photoshop. To access the photos inside a folder from here, just click once on the folder (as shown).
