Chapter 1. Getting Started with Photoshop CS > Creating Personalized Tips

Creating Personalized Tips

Not only does Photoshop CS give you access to helpful information, but it also lets you create you own personalized tips. Personalized tips allow you to create your very own Help system. For example, you discover this great way to color-correct an image that involves 6 or 7 steps; you've written the steps down, but you keep losing the paper. Creating a customized tip requires a bit of Web programming knowledge, but the time spent learning how to create a basic Web page is worth the effort.

Create Personalized Tips

Click the Help menu, point to How To Create How Tos, and then click Create Your Own How To Tips.

Photoshop opens BB Edit (Mac) or your browser with instructions to open a text editor (Win).

Open the HTML template Add_001.html, located in the Photoshop CS/Help/Additional How To Content Folder, or create you own html document from scratch.

Save the new help document using a descriptive name, such as How to Template, in the Photoshop CS/Help/Additional How To Content Folder, and then close the editor.

Restart Photoshop, and then click the Help menu to access your new help document.
