Whereas the lasso tools make freeform selections, the Magic Wand tool creates selections by picking up pixels of similar colors.
The Quick Selection tool enables you to paint your desired selection. And the Move, Crop, and Perspective Crop tools do just what their names describe — move and crop images.
Crop-tool details reside in Book II, Chapter 1. The path tools create and modify vector paths, which are elements comprised of straight and curved segments and anchor points. You can then use these paths as a basis for a selection, to define a shape, or create a mask. Figure The Elliptical Marquee tool left lets you make an elliptical selection; the Move tool right enables you to move a selection within your image.
The Path Selection and Direct Selection tools select your paths and path components after you draw the path. Figure shows examples of using the Pen tool and Direct Selection tool, respectively.
Figure The Pen tool creates a path of anchor points and segments; use the Direct Selection tool to select and manipulate those points and segments. Generally, the painting tools allow you to apply color or erase pixels. In the case of the Gradient tool, you can apply multiple colors simultaneously.
And with the Art History Brush tool, you paint on a stylized effect rather than color. The Color Replacement tool lets you replace the color within your image with the foreground color. The three Eraser tools are painting tools, but erase to the background color or to transparency, in the case of layers. Figure shows an example of a heart drawn with the Custom Shape tool, painted with the Brush tool using the Scattered Rose brush tip , Special Effects brush left , and later right partially erased with the Eraser tool.
Figure The painting tools can add texture and color to a basic shape; the Eraser tool erases pixels to reveal your background color. The Mixer Brush tool simulates traditional, natural media painting methods, such as blending and mixing color together and varying the wetness within a brushstroke. See Book IV, Chapters 1 and 2, for details on most of the painting tools. The cloning and retouching tools are the powerhouse tools to break out when you need to do some image repairs.
These tools allow you to duplicate portions of your image, paint with a pattern, or seamlessly fix scratches, wrinkles, and other blemishes. The unique History Brush tool lets you actually paint a previous version of your image back into your current image — perfect for undoing mistakes. The Spot Healing Brush quickly removes small blemishes and hickeys of all kinds.
If you need to fix larger areas, you can break out the Healing Brush tool or improved Patch tool. The Red Eye tool removes the nasty red reflections in the eyes of your loved ones, as shown in Figure Type tools pretty much do what their moniker suggests — create type of varying sorts. The Horizontal Type tool and Vertical Type tool create regular type, either point or paragraph, and type on a path or within a shape; the Mask Type tools create selections in the shape of letters — which you can then fill with images, patterns, colors, and so on.
For type tool details, see Book IV, Chapter 3. Figure You can easily create vector type top or a type mask bottom in Photoshop. The focus and toning tools allow you to enhance your image by altering the pixels in various ways. You can lighten, darken, blur, smudge, sharpen, saturate, or desaturate color in selected portions of your image.
For example, in Figure , I used the Smudge tool to make my still life look more painterly. To saturate the baby and desaturate the balls, I used the Sponge tool. Figure You can make your images stand out from the crowd with the Smudge left or Sponge right tool.
The shape tools allow you to create vector elements in your image. You can fill these elements with a color, a gradient, a pattern, or leave them as an empty path. Although vector elements are the heart and soul of the shape tools, you can also create shapes filled with pixels.
For shape details, see Book IV, Chapter 1. Figure shows a tree from the Custom Shape presets and a crest of my own design made from the Rectangle and Ellipse shape tools in action. Photoshop has an abundance of tools to help you view and navigate your image window.
These tools allow you to zoom in as shown in Figure and out, move your image within the window, and measure distances and angles. The Eyedropper and Color Sampler tools let you pick up and sample color respectively — handy for grabbing or evaluating color in an image. The Notes tool creates written notes that you can leave within an image window — useful for collaboration purposes or simply for reminders to yourself.
Figure Create shapes from large preset libraries or from your own imagination with the Shape tools. In the Tools panel, you find the Slice tool and Slice Select tool, which allow you to create and select slices. Slices are rectangular sections from an image that you can optimize and turn into web features.
For example, you might slice an image and, in Dreamweaver, apply rollovers and image maps to those slices separately for the best viewing experience on your web page. Photoshop also provides a whole array of 3-D tools and features, which you can use to create graphics, but only in the Extended version.
Creating tool presets is a real timesaver if you use specific tool settings on a frequent basis. For example, I make numerous 2-xinch and 2-xinch rectangular selections on images I use in a newsletter. For example, if you selected the Rectangular Marquee tool in Step 1, you may want to select Fixed Size from the Style pop-up menu and then enter your desired Width and Height values. Then, choose Tools from the pop-up menu and select your preset. Select the preset and drag it to the trash. At the initial launch, you are presented with a prompt that asks if you want to migrate your presets from your previous version.
You can manage your presets by selecting options from the Tool Preset Picker pop-up menu. Table describes these options. Although you can create some interesting images from scratch in Photoshop, most of the time, you work with digital pictures that already exist. These pictures may be images captured by your scanner; photos you, or your family and friends, have snapped with a digital camera.
Photoshop offers you many options for opening existing images, creating new images, and saving original files or copies to your hard drive. After you open, edit, and save your files, you may want to transfer those images from screen to paper. This chapter takes you through the steps you need to know to get your photos in and out of Photoshop.
Check out Book I, Chapter 4 for a complete description of Bridge. The Bridge window opens, as shown in Figure You can also browse in Mini Bridge, which can even remain within your application workspace as a panel.
For more on this handy new addition, see Book I, Chapter 4. In the default workspace, to navigate to a folder you want to search, click the Folders tab and locate your desired folder from the list. Click an image in the lightbox area to see it in the Preview pane which shows up on the right side of the Bridge. Bridge graciously provides information about the file in the Metadata panel located below the Preview.
If you know where an image file is stored, you can open the file in a similar way to opening a word processing, spreadsheet, or other file. Follow these steps to open a file:. The layout of the dialog box differs slightly between the two. Figure shows the Windows version and Figure the Mac version.
From the Files of type list Windows or Enable pop-up menu Mac OS , you can select which types of files you want to display. To select multiple files, click the first file and then Ctrl-click maccmd -click on the Mac each additional file. Click a filename to open it or simply type the number next to the filename. You can specify the number of files that appear on this menu in the File Handling section of the Preferences dialog box.
For the lowdown on how to specify this value, jump ahead to Book I, Chapter 5. Photoshop uses different methods in Windows and Mac OS to determine the format of an image file:. You, like many other users, may have changed the default to display file extensions.
File extensions may or may not be hidden in the Mac OS. In this dialog box, you can show or hide the extension for that file and change what application is associated with that file or all files with the same extension. For compatibility reasons, Macintosh applications, such as Photoshop usually use the Windows file extension.
However, when you move files from one platform to the other, they can easily be misidentified. This facility works slightly differently in Windows than in the Mac OS.
If you selected the right format in Step 2, the file opens in Photoshop. Select another and try again. The standard Open dialog box includes an Enable option at the bottom. Select All Documents from the Enable pop-up menu. Then, you can select the file format you want to try directly from the Format pop-up menu. Photoshop enables you to open a file as a Smart Object.
Smart Objects are beneficial because they allow you to transform and manipulate your image data non-destructively. These files are often created by programs other than Photoshop such as Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Illustrator or acquired from your digital camera.
Although Photoshop can open these files independently, you can use the Place feature if you want to combine them with an existing image. Otherwise, it may not be placed. For some types of files, such as multipage PDF files, you may see a dialog box like the one shown in Figure , which lets you specify which page you want to place.
You can also select either the entire Page or just a particular Image on the page. Finally, select how much of your image you want to place from the Crop To pop-up menu.
The default bounding box crops to the smallest area that includes text and graphics. If you want, reposition the artwork by positioning your cursor inside the bounding box and dragging. You can also transform scale, rotate, and so on your placed artwork, if you want — by dragging or rotating the handles on the bounding box or by entering values on the Options bar.
Hold down the Shift key to constrain the proportions when scaling. If you enlarge them too much, you may degrade the quality of your image. Because Photoshop rasterizes the file, using the resolution of the file into which you placed it. You can, however, edit a Smart Object in the program it was created in, such as Illustrator. See Book V, Chapter 5 for details. Note that when art is larger than the Photoshop image, Photoshop downsizes the art so that it fits the image.
See Book II, Chapter 1 for more on rasterizing and resolution. Double-click inside the bounding box to commit the placed image to a new layer. You can also press Enter Return on the Mac or click the Commit button the check icon on the Options bar. At some point, you want to create a new image from scratch. You may want an empty canvas to paint on or need a blank image as scratch space.
Or you may want to paste a copied selection into a new document. In the New dialog box, select a preset image category from the Preset pop-up menu.
Choose from common categories such as U. The Clipboard provides the size that corresponds with an image that you copied. Here are a couple of other preset tips:. Open files are listed at the bottom of the Preset list. Name your preset. Choose any or all the options you want to include in your preset.
