Chapter 2. The Photoshop Interface > The Photoshop Interface: A Chef's Tour

The Photoshop Interface: A Chef's Tour

Photoshop is no different from many computer programs available. Almost every facet of creation and production in Photoshop is controlled through palettes, tools, and menu commands. Mouse clicks and drags and keystroke combinations are used to interact with the program's elements. Understanding the basics of that interface can improve your productivity.

Figures 2.6 through 2.8 show Photoshop 7 running on a monitor set to a resolution of 800×600 to show some of the program's interface detail. The difference between the minimum monitor setting and higher resolutions is discussed in the sidebar “Monitor Settings and the Photoshop Interface.”

Figure 2.6. This is the basic appearance of Photoshop when opened in Windows XP.


Figure 2.8. This is the basic appearance of Photoshop when opened in Macintosh OS 9.
