The main elements of Photoshop

A Look at Photoshop

This chapter introduces the basic interface of Photoshop: tools, palettes, the option bar, and image window. If you feel comfortable with these topics, skip to the next chapter. My main goal in this chapter is to identify the basic vocabulary of Photoshop used throughout this book.

The image above shows the main elements of Photoshop as they first appear. Ensure you have an image open if you want to experiment with the interface. Many Photoshop options are not available if no image is open.
