Setting Up and Optimizing the Workspace

Customizing Photoshop can improve your efficiency. Learning a few simple techniques can save seconds here and there that add up to precious minutes when a deadline (or the weekend) approaches.

The contextual menu enables you to quickly do such things as select a brush (any of the painting tools), change the unit of measure (Rulers), duplicate a layer (selection tools), even change the thumbnail size in a palette. Make it a habit to right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) on everything a few times, just to see what the contextual menu holds.
