Customizing the Workspace

adobe

PS 1.1

Photoshop consists of a document surrounded by an Options bar, toolbox, and up to 19 floating palettes. Depending on how you work, your workspace may reflect any combination of the above. For example, when you work with text, you would need the Character and Paragraph palettes, but you might not need the Styles or Histogram palette. To work efficiently, each job requires a certain organization of the workspace. Rather than making you redesign your workspace every time you begin a new project, Photoshop gives you ways to create and save your own customized workspaces.

Create a Customized Workspace

  • yellow_circle1 Arrange the palettes into a specific working order.
  • yellow_circle2 Click the Window button on the Options bar (New!) or point to Workspace on the Window menu, and then click Save Workspace.
  • yellow_circle3 Type a name for the workspace.
  • yellow_circle4 Select check boxes to save Palette Locations, Keyboard Shortcuts, or Menus.
  • yellow_circle5 Click Save.

Delete a Customized Workspace

  • yellow_circle1 Click the Window button on the Options bar (New!) or point to Workspace on the Window menu, and then click Delete Workspace.
  • yellow_circle2 Click the Workspace list arrow, and then click the workspace you want to delete, or click All.
