Using The Home Screen
Let's begin by opening Photoshop. So on your computer at home, go in and launch Photoshop. And by default, when Photoshop launches, it will start on the home screen. Now the home screen is the place that you can use to do all of the beginning stuff, opening files, creating new documents, or even learning about Photoshop. So let me walk you through each of these different things. So on the left, you can see that we have home and we have this little Learn tab. The learn tab is great because you have all kinds of tutorials. We're gonna learn more about those a little bit later, and then underneath that you have your work. And so if you have Lightroom, so some people have Photoshop and Lightroom, the images that you've saved in Lightroom in the cloud will show up here in Photoshop. So you can update those and save the photos, and it will work back and forth between Photoshop. You can also store photos on the cloud and it'll save hard drive space, and so I've got several photos here that I'...
ve saved in the cloud, and you can open these and work on them just like they are on your local hard drive. You can also work with other people. I haven't set this up yet, but you can share documents to work as a team. And then you have your deleted files, I haven't deleted anything recently. And then last we have Create New. If you click on that, this is where if you wanna create a blank canvas, you can do that. And so you have all kinds of different things. You have basic photo layouts, print layouts for magazines and things like that. You've got web layouts for thumbnails, and mobile and film and video. Those things that we talked about earlier, Photoshop has features for different disciplines. And so you just have to worry about the ones that work for you or you can create your own and save that as a template. I'm gonna close this, and then last but not least, we can open files from here as well.
