3Photoshop 7 Basic: User Manual

Having successfully completed the Photoshop Module Basic I, you will be able to assist an ILC Client with basic questions concerning opening a document, creating a document, editing a document, copying and pasting within a document, saving a document, copying to and from a Zip disk and printing a document. These skills will be usable on both Macs and PCs.

EXERCISE 1 PHOTOSHOP CONCEPT:

First we will go through a Collage comparison in class to illustrate how Photoshop features work and apply to something we already know. This collage example should stick in your mind as you think of what you want to do with Photoshop. Always try to relate an unknown to a known to simplify a problem.

Below is a complete Photoshop interface example:

EXERCISE 2 OPENING A FILE:

Opening a file is easy, just do Menu > File > Open…Navigate to the file and highlight it, then click OK. But what if you don’t know where the file is? If the location of the file is unknown, use Find File.

Practice Steps:

1.Find the file Collage.jpg (Use File Find )( Note Location) 2.Go back to PhotoShop 3.Do Menu > File > Open Collage.jpg

NOTE: Sometimes a window asking if you want to convert to open. Convert to working space is the desired option.

EXERCISE 3 CREATING A NEW DOCUMENT:

This next task is creating a new document. There are several issues to consider. First is a reminder to watch me, then we will do it together.

SIZE is the dimensions of your document and can be set using pixels, inches or others. BACKGROUND is what your bottom layer is…Transparent, colored or white RESOLUTION is very important…It is how much info is in your document.

5Photoshop 7 Basic: User Manual

To create a new document you choose Menu >File >New. This opens a window that requires some input:

NOTE: Resolution specs Web Resolution = 72 Print resolution = 150 or 300 Film Resolution = 600 Rather than getting into a discussion on resolution, lets just use these settings, as they will work everywhere.

Follow Along Steps:

Okay, lets do this together 1.Menu > File > New 2.Put in a Size ( 8 inch by 1 inch) 3.Background is White 4.Resolution is 150 this time.

What good is an empty document if you don’t know what to do next? Now we are going to learn how to put some content into it via Select/Copy/Paste.

EXERCISE 4 SELECTING/COPYING/PASTING:

First lets reset the tools. This is done by clicking on a tool and resetting all tools in tool option bar directly below the menu bar.

Click and hold where indicated by the circle. This reveals a window…select reset all tools and click OK. This is done because a previous user could have set custom configurations that you do not desire. Next let’s focus on a selection tool such as the Marquee Tool.

The Marquee Tool allows you to click and drag an area of an image, thus selecting it. Notice that the selected area is surrounded by the “Marching Ants” - a moving dotted line. This is the area that you can affect. This selected area can be affected in many ways, for now though, we just want to copy and paste it.

This works just like a word processor in the sense that you select an area, copy an area and then paste it to a destination. Notice that when you paste into another document, a new layer is created.

TIP: Another useful trick for copying/pasting is the move tool. Select a layer from one document and move it with the move tool to the other document. It will paste whatever was on that layer into the new document.

What you just pasted is separate from other parts, it can be moved, rotated, etc., separately from the others, just like in the Collage example. Also note that you cannot affect that layer unless you single click on it in the Layer window. (Menu > Window > Layer).

EXERCISE 5 SAVE DOCUMENT AND THE FORMAT:

Formats:

Steps: 1.First lets open Collage.psd located in the workshop folder on the desktop. 2.Menu > File > Open navigate to document, click once on it, click OK. 3.Next let’s save it as Work.psd in the Test folder in the workshop folder on the desktop. 4.Next save it as Work.jpg in the FindMe folder in the workshop folder on the desktop. 5.Menu > File > Save As Change name, Navigate to desired save location, Click OK.
