Some useful tips:

  • The panels on the right side of the screen can be added, closed, expanded/collapsed and reorganized. They can also be docked and undocked. Play around with them so you get comfortable organizing your screen.
  • There are a number of different panels you can add to the right side of your screen. Go to Window on the File Menu and add the History panel. This panel shows every thing you have done to your image and makes it easy to back a few steps or to compare before and after you do something.
  • Another useful panel is the Navigator. This panel lets you easily zoom in and out while showing you the part of the image you a working on. You can use the slider, the zoom buttons on each side of the slider and drag the red box around to navigate.
  • The hand tool lets you drag the document around the screen. You can momentarily use this tool by holdingdown the Space Bar as you click and drag the image.
