Weird Adobe Photoshop Features & Easter Eggs

Hi there. This video is full of random stuff. That's not gonna help Photoshop, but I think you need to know if you're going to be advanced, you need to know how to make things like your color theme turn into toast, how to make random bananas appear, how to change the background color to pink. And this one actually might be that useful. We can change what appears down the bottom here to be something more useful. Probably more than how many layers you have, But probably not much more. This is advanced persons. Right of passage video. Let's go first. Let's look at a kind of strange kind of useful thing in Photoshop. So let's open up any image. Basically, I'm just going to use the image four from our 03 folder from the photographer, alexander Andrews. I just want something open. Why? Because the start screen kind of doesn't have a lot of the parts. If you don't like this start screen, you can go to window and go to work space instead of being on start, just be on essentials. Okay. And you ...

go back to kind of how Photoshop used to be in the good old days regardless. Let's have a file open. We're going to look down the bottom here. Ok. By default, this little setting here that you've probably never clicked on, you've probably seen the file size maybe down here, but there's a few little things you can change it to. That might be helpful for you. So you are really hardcore on your profiles. Your color profiles. S RGB. Okay, just wanna always look down there and go S RGB or C. M Y K or whatever you're using. Okay, other useful ones, document dimensions is kind of cool. Okay, it shows you that it's 2000 by 2000 and it's 72 PP. I Another little thing is it doesn't really matter which one of these you've got selected. Anyone. If you click on it and click and hold it, it tells you the kind of basics. So with height, how many channels it has? You can see it's eight bits per channel. That's what the ABP C means. We'll talk about bits later on. You'll also see the resolution. That might just be easier than going here And then going to image size. Let's have a look at a couple of other ones. So measurements scale good if you're dealing with doing kind of retina stuff, scratch sizes, efficiency is a weird one. Like efficiency is at 100%. It means that Photoshop is running as good as it can, giving the giving it the resources, you've given it. What I mean by that is remember we had in here preferences, we went to performance and we said here you go have this much RAM. We'll have this much RAM. Okay, we've given it this much RAM. What you can do is you can see down here how efficient you know how well it's working if I try and stress it out. Am I gonna stress it out. Just try and do something like this. Hit enter, let's get it to change its working fine. If you find it blows jobs below 100% for a lot of the time it's trying hard but it can't work as fast as it could. So that just might be useful. You might like man is my machine slow? Maybe it is. Maybe it's not. This will tell you whether it's just Photoshop going through its motions or whether your machine is holding it up, you can go back to kind of like the speeding up Photoshop video. If you need to kind of upgrade things, can't really change it that much. But hey, you might find it useful timing. I still haven't worked out how this, what that actually does. I think it's for the task that you've given. It took 0.2 seconds. Current tools not that handy or on the move tool 32 big exposure. We'll look at that when we do 8 16, 32 bit later on save progress. How many smart objects you have? How many layers you have for me often it's document size, which is what it started out with. That's why it's in this kind of random video. But this is the advanced course, right? We need to learn advanced stuff. Now let's get on to the easter eggs. So what is an easter egg basically it's just a bit of code that the developers of Photoshop Okay. The guys at adobe who kind of sneak things in to see if they can sneak things in, like little surprises like easter eggs. Now in this version of Photoshop is a couple. Um there's a banana and some toast. They do absolutely nothing except what I find them useful for is doing, changing these things on people's computers that are away for holidays when they get back, I've missed about best. One of the most obvious one is see this little three dot here, the edit toolbar, hold it down, click on edit toolbar and if you just hold down the shift key, okay, either Mac or Pc and just click done. Okay, you can see what changed over here. There's a banana, does nothing except it's kind of funny. It never turns off either. Well you can turn it off. So if, if you decide that that's not a good idea, click and hold it down, go back into here. And if you hold down the command key on a Mac and click done or control key on a PC for you have to turn it off. Turn my back on. I love having that on hold, shift, click done. The other one is toast. This one's a little bit more hidden and it's just fun to know like if there's a Photoshop party and you're there and you don't know about the toast, you're gonna be asked to leave. So on a Mac, go to Photoshop, go to preferences. Now, remember on a Pc, it's under edit and way down the bottom here for preferences and I want to be in the one that says interface and it's just this thing along the top here. Normally. Well, normally just its job is to kind of change the interface color and you might like this just just because the good old days of Photoshop used to be this light white color. Now it's in this kind of moody, broody dark color. Now the trick here is to hold down shift and hold down on a Mac, hold down the option key and click on this kind of fires it into like toast mode. If you're on a PC it shift and hold down the old key and give it a click now that it's toast. It does the same job. Just toast. But you can also do once you're here so do that first step first which is shift in either alter or option and give it a click. Now you can hold down shift and hold the command down on a Mac or shift and control down on PC and you can toggle between coffee colors and toast colors. If you go to Photoshop conference okay, you'll see these little guys on t shirts and stuff like that. You're in the know wink wink secret handshake does absolutely nothing. But you need to know the easter eggs. One of the little thing I'll throw in here is this background because we were looking at interface colors. It kind of just got me thinking this dark gray in the background is fine. You might not like it, you can right click it and say I want to be black. You saw the interface, changed the old background, but not this kind of like paste board area so right click it and dark gray is the normal, but you can go through and pick. The other thing you might do when your friends are away or your buddy at schools away is go to slick custom color and just put it as something awful and then you go, they won't know how to change it back. They got bananas, they've got a pink background which is hurting my eyes. So I'm going to go back to degree. Alright, so that is the weird features and easter eggs video. Let's get into the next section now where we start fixing images, no more settings and workflow techniques. We've got all those out of our system. We are now ready to be super efficient and learn more advanced things. Let's do it

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
