Now the next thing I want you to do go to your Info Palette. The Info Palette is a very groovy palette inside of Photoshop. The great palette with which to analyze the contents of an image, both the existing contents of an image and the proposed contents of an image. So when you are modifying say Level Settings you can see what RGB values or CMYK values used to be assigned to a pixel and then you can see the new revised RGB or CMYK values as well.
Now to bring up the Info Palette, in case you are not seeing it on screen, you can choose Info from the Window menu or you can press the F8 key. Once you get the Info Palette up, now notice inside of Photoshop CS2 the Info Palette is a taller Palette and it's trying to tell you more stuff. You can see the document size for example, which used to be relegated to the Status bar something that has gone away inside of Photoshop CS2, the old Status bar that was on the Window side only. And you now see all that Status bar information in the lower left hand corner of your image window, but I like to see it actually inside the Info Palette. I think that's a great addition and we can add some more information to this palette as well as we will in just a moment.
The bad news here is that you get this tips information about the selected tool, because I have my Rectangular Marquee Tool selected, it tells me that I can use the Shift and Alt and Ctrl keys to get different effects. Well, you know what, I now what that. I don't need to see that for every single selected tool. It's not really all that useful of information anyway.
So I am going to go over to the Info Palette menu and I am going to choose Palette Options and that will bring up this dialog box here and the first thing I am going to do is turn off Show Tool Hints, because I don't want to see those tool hints there and I want to open up that space inside the palette to show more useful status information.
For example, in addition to Document Sizes, I want to see the Color Profile, I want to see the Document Dimensions in pixels, I might even want to see things like the Scratch Sizes, Efficiency, Timing, Current Tool, not so useful, but these four lower checkboxes here and if you use Version Cue, I suppose you might want to see information about that is well. But these four checkboxes, those are the ones I recommend you definitely turn on. Make sure your Ruler Units are set to Pixels as I said earlier and then click OK and notice what you see now.
You can see the Document Size and the color profile and the dimensions, all the stuff at the same time. You have never been able to see this information all at once which working inside of an image before, but now inside of CS2 thanks to modifying the settings inside the Info Palette you can.
Alright, then I recommend you try to make sure that the Info Palette is visible at all times on screen. Now I am going to move it off of our zoomed view of the Photoshop application window for just a moment here.
