Setting Up Photoshop
Published on July 12, 2017
There are millions of ways to set up your workspace in Photoshop. It is totally a personal preference thing. This set up is the one that we have found a good baseline to start…
- Go to the Window Menu
- Choose “Workspace” then essentials (now we are going to customize the workspace).
- On the right hand side of your screen, you’ll have several palettes. We are going to delete and add several.
- Pull the following palettes out of the menu:
- X out each of these palettes – we don’t use them frequently. Now you should just have your Layers palette to the right.
- Go to the top menu “window” and choose “Actions,” Tool Presets, and History.
- Bundle these three palettes together.
- Pull the Layers palette out of the docked position and attach the bundled “Actions” and “Tool Presets” and History to the bottom of the layers.
- Move Layer Palettes back to the side docked position.
