Customizing the Workspace

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.
