Adobe has launched many photoshop versions and the last edition was Adobe Photoshop CC.So through this post I like to help you to start your photoshop journey.This is our first post about photoshop,so we like to teach you the base means how to get start your photoshop.First of all we will see starting interface and keyboard-shortcuts for adobe photoshop:
Am using Adobe photoshop CS6 version in this tutorial.So if you are using any old version dont worry basics are same for all of them and am explaining only basics.So let’s start.
First Click Adobe Photoshop shortcut in your desktop:
- File > Save. Save your files in any of the different formats available. If you are not sure what format to choose go with .psd or .tiff.
- File > Save for Web and Devices. Save your files as .png, .jpeg or .gif.
- File > Open. Open a file.
- File > New. Create a new file.
- Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts. Change keyboard shortcuts and menus.
- Window > Workspace > Reset Workspace. If you screw your workspace this option will reset it to it’s default state. Also accessible from the “Show More Workspaces and Options” button from the Application Bar. Also note that when you open the “Window” menu you will see some little check marks next to some names. The check marks indicate what panels (or panels groups) are opened. Try it for yourself and check or uncheck panels. Lower down you will see a check mark next to “Options” and “Tools”. Uncheck “Options” to get rid of the Options bar or uncheck “Tools” to get rid of the tools panel. I never use this option because I know a keyboard shortcut for it. While in “Standard Screen Mode” press Tab to get rid of the Tools panel and the Docked Panels or press Shift+Tab to get rid of the Docked Panels only.
- Help > Photoshop Help. Don’t be shy to use help when you don’t know something. Use the search bar to find your topics. If you have a poor internet connection then you will do better if you download the help file in .pdf format to have it available all the time. Here’s the link to the .pdf file (CS5). Just let it load then save it to your computer. Also beware that due to the size of the file (40 mb) some old browsers might crash so use a modern (good) browser like Firefox or Opera.
