Welcome to the first PSDer

Ever.  Happy Holidays!


Welcome Photoshop Designer! There will be an Article, Tutorial or Both for each column of every issue of the PSDer.  Thanks for joining us on your way into understanding Adobe® Photoshop® & effectively applying it for graphic design. Enjoy & Happy Holidays!

Changing the Font of Several Layers:

Link all of your type layers, hold down the shift key and in the Options bar, choose a different font.  Your linked text layers will automatically change.

Need to move an image while using another tool (such as transform when you can't see the outer boundaries)? 

When you're in full screen mode in CS, zoomed in too close or seemingly just 'stuck' or can't switch to another tool easily, you can press the space bar to use  the hand tool to move the image around.  Release it and you're back to whatever tool that you were using.  This way you don't have to switch to the Hand tool itself.

Remember that "Tab" toggles the toolbar/menu's on and off.  And pressing "F" changes the screen modes.  It is good to get used to this as soon as you can.  Why? because it gives you more space to work with, looks prettier and you feel like you know something (if you're new).

“Excellent! This Photoshop tutorial

teaches me everything that I need

to know about the powerful tools

of Photoshop.   Not only that, but

it also is helping me gain a better

understanding of the basics of

good design.  Nowhere else have

I seen anyone teach the elements

of great movie poster design.  I

would highly recommend

Photoshop Designer for anyone

who uses Photoshop.”

Check out Adobe Photoshop CS.  It's worth the upgrade from Photoshop 7 or previous.  If you're really into digital imaging/publishing then you should consider the Full Creative Suite.
