Changing screen modes in Adobe Photoshop CC
In this chapter, you are introduced to the Photoshop CC work area and tools. You’ll also find out how to neatly organize and hide panels. In this chapter, you will also find out how to do basic tasks, such as open an image, crop it to a different size, and then resave it.
When Photoshop is first launched, or until you change your preferences, you will see a start screen, as shown in Figure 1-1. This start screen can making it easier for you to find files that you have recently worked on or jump right into a new document.
If you would rather not have this screen every time you launch Photoshop, you can choose Edit ⇒ Preferences ⇒ General and uncheck Show Start Workspace When No Documents Are Open. On the Mac you would choose Photoshop ⇒ Preferences ⇒ General and uncheck Show Start Workspace When No Documents Are Open.
