All right, I am just going to escape out of the menu here and return to the image window. In addition, I am letting you modify keyboard shortcuts and configure menus, Photoshop also allows you to modify the interface by deciding which follows are available on screen where they are and so on.
For example, if you drag a pallet by its title bar, by this top area, there is no title, so it is a little misleading. But, this is called the Title Bar. If you drag the title bar, then you move the entire group of pallets. So, I am moving the navigator info and histogram pallets all of the same time.
And in my case, I have kind of small screen to work with here. I am working at 1024 x 769. So, I only want to see three pallet clusters, I do not want to see four of them. I want to give myself a little more room to work, especially inside the layers pallet and the history pallet. So, I am going to drag my color pallet up like so, and notice that it wants to snap in place, once to snap into alignment with the top of the screen.
Now, another thing you can do, you can drag pallets in and out of pallet clusters like this watch’s pallet is not a pallet I use very often. So, I am going to drag it out its cluster, and then I am just going to close it. So, dragging it out of the pallet cluster turns it into its own floating pallet and then closing it obviously gets rid of it. And now, I am going to try dragging the histogram pallet which I like a lot and we are going to talk more about that in the future lessons. We are going to talk more about all of these pallets actually.
I am going to drag this pallet tab into this other cluster. So, from one cluster into a different cluster like so. So now, I have a new starting cluster of color, styles and histogram. Now, how about these pallets that are sitting out here, info and navigator? I consider both of these pallets to be very useful pallets, but not pallets that I need on a completely regular basis. Now of course, your experience may vary, but that is what I think of them. Another words, it is sort of second tear pallets for me.
I do not want to completely close them, but I do not want them taken a valuable screen real estate all the time either. So, what do I do with them?
Well, you can dump them in, this area here, this pallet well right there. Notice that there was on these tabs that are just sitting there inside this little pallet well. Well, if I click on the tab, the pallet comes up. By click again, the pallet goes away. Same with the brushes here can even be a very big pallet like brushes, now I click again and it goes away.
So, it just shows me the tabs, but not the pallets. So, there are just kind of there, and that is where I am going to put navigator, drag and drop it in there, and info, drag it by the tab and drop it into the well.
Now, feel differently about layer comps. I really love this pallet. Another one that we are going to discuss in detail, I am going to drag it out and drop into the history in actions pallet cluster, and then I am going to move that up in the position here. I am going to scale this pallet a little bit, so it is a little bit bigger. Drag it down like so. Then, I am going to drag the layers pallet, I am going to drag it so it snaps onto the bottom of the pallet and there we have it, my preferred setup of pallets.
Nice and tightly column of pallets along right hand side of the screen. Three clusters of three pallets each.
All right, now let us save this pallet arrangement as a custom workspace. I am going to go out the window menu, choose workspace and choose save workspace, and I am going to name my workspace preferred 10 x 7 which is short hand for 1024 x 678. And notice that you can save the pallet locations. That is on by default. You can also save your keyboard shortcuts and your menus and make that all part of the save workspace. That will allows you not only to switch between different pallet configurations on the fly, but different sets of keyboard shortcuts, different sets of menus and so on, if you want to.
