Photoshop getting started part2

  1. 1. OPENING Begin by opening Adobe Photoshop CS3,CS4 or CS5. On a PC, click Start > Programs > Adobe > Photoshop CS4, or click on the shortcut on the desktop.
  2. 2. SETTING UP THE DOCUMENT Setting up your document correctly from the start will make your job much easier as you work through your project. This will require some advanced planning. For example, if your final output will be a brochure, you may need to set up your document to be horizontal and double- sided.
  3. 3. To create a new document, click File > New. This will open the Document Setup dialog box Here you will be able to name your file, set up the correct page size, and orientation for your document.
  4. 4. Page Size and Orientation Change the page size by typing in new values for width and height. Page size represents the final size you want after bleeds or trimming other marks outside the page. In the Preset dropdown menu you can find such common sizes as letter, legal, tabloid, etc. Typing in exact values for Height and Width gives you more control over the size and orientation of your page.
  5. 5. Resolution Resolution is a number of pixels on a printed area of an image. The higher the resolution, the more pixels there are on the page, the better is the quality of the image. However, high resolution increases the size of the file. The standard recommended resolution for printed images is 150- 300, for Web images it is 72.
  6. 6. Color Mode Choose a color mode that will best fit your project. For example, when making a graphic for a web site, choose RGB. When making an image for print, choose CMYK.
  7. 7. A Few Words About Color Computers recognized many different color formats. Some common choices include:  RGB color — lists a value between 0 and 255 for each of the Red, Green, Blue components of a color. (0, 0, 0), the absence of color, is completely black. (255, 255, 255), the presence of all colors, is completely white. Most Photoshop artists work in RGB.  CMYK color —lists a percentage of each of the colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). CMYK can best be thought of as the “color printer cartridge colors.” Some graphics designers choose to convert their work (after it has been done in RGB) to CMYK so that they have a better sense of how it’s going to look after it is printed.  Grayscale —this is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a color mode that operates entirely in black and white. Usually in order to convert an image to grayscale, you will first need to flatten it.  Bitmap —Only allows for black and white dots (pixels); I wouldn’t recommend using this in most cases.  Lab color — Represents color with 3 components: (Lightness, color value from red to green, color value from blue to yellow). This is another non-standard color channel.
  8. 8. Background Contents Choose the background: white, color, or transparent. When you have entered all of your document settings, click OK.
  9. 9. OPENING AN IMAGE FROM A DISK If the image you have is saved on a disk, select File > Open, and then navigate to the disk drive where your image is saved. Choose the image file and click Open. At this point, you may want to save your image under a different name so that you can always have the original to fall back on in case of a mistake. To save you r file, select File > Save As and type in the new name of the file in the dialogue box. Now you should be ready to go.
  10. 10. This is the layout of Adobe Photoshop interface.
  11. 11. Basic Parts of PS Workspace Menu Bar If you look at the top of the screen you will see the Menu bar which contains all the main functions of Photoshop, such as File, Edit, Image, Layer, Select, Filter, View, Wind ow, and Help. Tool Bar Most of the major tools are located in the Tool bar for easy access. The Image The image will appear in its own window once you open a file.
  12. 12. Image Name The name of any image that you open will be at the top of the image window as shown above. Palettes Palettes contain functions that help you monitor and modify images. By default, palettes are stacked together in groups. These are the palettes that are usually visible: Color, Adjustments, and Layers. If none of the palettes are visible, go to Window in the Menu bar and choose palettes you need to work with.
