Task 1 Welcome to Photoshop and ImageReady

This task is a basic introduction to Photoshop and ImageReady. In this task, you launch each program and evaluate the general workspace.

1.
Launch Photoshop

To launch Photoshop in Windows, click the Start button and choose Programs, Adobe, Photoshop 7.0, Adobe Photoshop 7.0. To launch Photoshop on a Mac, open the folder labeled Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and double-click the Adobe Photoshop 7.0 icon.

2.
The Basic Photoshop Screen Areas

After closing the wizard, you'll see the full range of Photoshop controls arranged on your screen. The toolbox is on the left side of the screen and contains all the Photoshop tools. All the Photoshop palettes appear on the right side of the screen, and the menu bar appears across the top of the screen. The Options bar runs under the menu bar and contains the modifiers for each tool you select.

3.
Launch ImageReady

To launch ImageReady in Windows, click the Start button and choose Programs, Adobe, Photoshop 7.0, Adobe ImageReady. To launch ImageReady on a Mac, open the folder labeled Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and double-click the Adobe ImageReady icon.

4.
The Basic ImageReady Screen Areas

You will find that the ImageReady desktop looks very similar to the Photoshop desktop. Closer examination reveals that some of the tool icons and palettes are different, and that the Animation, Rollover, Image Map, and Style palettes appear in the lower-left corner of the screen.
