Toolbox Part 2 History
Tool Selection Slide-outs History, Actions History
History is a tool that allows you to keep a running list of changes you’ve made to your image. At any point, you are allowed to go back to any change you’ve made. Think of it as an undo list. The number of changes it saves is limited to your memory and the size of the tasks you perform.
The action toolbar is a way to “script” or record tasks to be used at a later time. A good example of an action would be a repetitive task like resizing multiple images. Another example is adding SEPIA to an image.
Tool Presets Tool presets let you save and reuse tool settings. You can load, edit, and create libraries of tool presets using the Tool Preset picker in the options bar, the Tool Presets palette, and the Preset Manager. To choose a tool preset, click the Tool Preset picker in the options bar, and select a preset from the pop‑up palette.

Reset when finished Clone Source you can set up to five different sample sources for the Clone Stamp tools or Healing Brush tools. You can display an overlay of your sample source to help you clone the source in a specific location. You can also scale or rotate the sample source to clone the sample at a specific size and orientation Clone Stamp The Clone Stamp tool paints one part of an image over another part of the same image. You can also paint part of one layer over another layer. The Clone Stamp tool is useful for duplicating objects or removing a defect in an image.
Set a sampling point on the area you want to copy (clone) the pixels from and paint over another area using ALT click
TIP: To paint with the most current sampling point whenever you stop and resume painting, select the Aligned option. Deselect the Aligned option to paint starting from the initial sampling point no matter how many times you stop and resume painting. You can use any brush tip with the Clone Stamp tool, which gives you precise control over the size of the clone area. You can also use opacity and flow settings to control how paint will be applied to the cloned area.

The character toolbar allows you to choose a typeface and size quickly. It also gives you control of letter spacing
The paragraph toolbar allows control of text justification and line spacing/position Palettes Navigator, Info A. Palette Menu Button

E. Zoom out button
F. Zoom slider
G. Zoom in button
The navigator is a tool that lets you easily move around inside of your image when zoomed in. It displays the entire image and has a small red rectangle showing the viewable area.
Info is a tool that gives you color and location information about your image and curser position.
Color, Swatches, Styles Color
The color toolbar is used to mix colors. Depending on what mode you are working in, it has options for RGB,
CMYK and HEX web colors.
Swatches are pre-mixed colors that are easy to grab. It also is used for holding custom colors you create. Ex: Dakota’s eyes
Styles are pre-existing style effect that can be applied to any object, from chrome to gradients. It also is used for holding custom styles you create. Ex: puzzle

HOW TO’s built in Options Bar Most tools have options that are displayed in the options bar. The options bar is context sensitive and changes as different tools are selected. Some settings in the options bar are common to several tools (such as painting modes and opacity), and some are specific to one tool (such as the Auto Erase setting for the Pencil tool).
Helpful Tips 2 main categories of graphics Bitmap Images – Raster (pixels)
Vector Images (mathematical objects)

H. I. Understanding Color RGB
HEX Knowing how colors are created and how they relate to each other lets you work more effectively in Photoshop. Instead of achieving an effect by accident, you’ll produce consistent results thanks to an understanding of basic color theory.
RGB – Primary Colors Additive primaries are the three colors of light (red, green, and blue) that produce all the colors in the visible spectrum when added together in different combinations. Adding equal parts of red, blue, and green light produces white. The complete absence of red, blue, and green light results in black. Computer monitors are devices that use the additive primaries to create color.
CMYK Subtractive primaries are pigments, which create a spectrum of colors in different combinations. Unlike monitors, printers use subtractive primaries (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black pigments) to produce colors through subtractive mixing. The term “subtractive” is used because the primary colors are pure until you begin mixing them together, resulting in colors that are less pure versions of the primaries. For example, orange is created through the subtractive mixing of magenta and yellow together.
The Color Wheel The color wheel If you’re new to adjusting color components, it helps to keep a standard color wheel diagram on hand when you work on color balance. You can use the color wheel to predict how a change in one color component affects other colors and also how changes translate between RGB and CMYK color models.
Shapes Channels Channels are grayscale images that store different types of
Color information channels are created automatically when you open a new image. The image’s color mode determines the number of color channels created. For example, an RGB image has a channel for each color (red, green, and blue) plus a composite channel used for editing the image.
Alpha channels store selections as grayscale images. You can add alpha channels to create and store masks, which let you manipulate or protect parts of an image. Spot color channels specify additional plates for printing with spot color inks. An image can have up to 56 channels. All new channels have the same dimensions and number of pixels as the original image. The file size required for a channel depends on the pixel information in the channel. Certain file formats, including TIFF and Photoshop formats, compress channel information and can save space. The size of an uncompressed file, including alpha channels and layers, appears as the rightmost value in the status bar at the bottom of the window when you choose Document Sizes from the pop‑up menu.
Note: As long as you save a file in a format supporting the image’s color mode, the color channels are preserved.
Paths (VECTOR) Paths
The paths tool allows you to create clipping paths to be used in
encapsulated postscript (EPS) files. Clipping paths allow a curved image to be placed in a desktop publishing program. Basically, paths are special types of selections that are made up of a group of moveable points that allow us to create any kind of shape we want.
Create a new work path:
Select a shape tool or a pen tool, and click the Paths button in the options bar. Set tool-specific options, and draw the path. For more information, see Shape tool options and About the Pen tools. Draw additional path components if desired. You can easily switch between drawing tools by clicking a tool button in the options bar. Choose a path area option to determine how overlapping path components intersect: Add To Path Area Adds the new area to overlapping path areas. Subtract From Path Area Removes the new area from the overlapping path area. Intersect Path Areas Restricts the path to the intersection of the new area and the existing area.
