Chapter 1. Getting Started with Photoshop CS2 > Working with Photoshop Tools

Working with Photoshop Tools

Photoshop has an abundance of tools; located in the toolbox, they give a Photoshop designer tremendous control over any creative designing problems that may crop up. For example, the Photoshop toolbox contains eight selection tools (you can never have enough selection tools), 10 painting or shape tools, 4 type tools, and 12 tools dedicated to restoring and manipulating old images. Add to that mix, slicing, sampling, and view tools and you have a total of 59 dedicated tools. When you work on a document, it's important to know what tools are available, and how they help in achieving your design goals. Photoshop likes to save space, so it consolidates similar tools under one button. To access multiple tools, click and hold on any toolbox button that contains a small black triangle, located in the lower-right corner of the tool button. Take a moment to explore the Photoshop toolbox and get to know the tools.
