The Photoshop Workspace  

Previous | Next | Table of Contents

When you run Adobe Photoshop, it will load up, initialize, and display your workspace. The workspace consists of several components that you will use to create your works of art.

Generally, there are four components in your workspace that you will use while creating or modifying graphics. These components are as follows:

  • The Menu Bar
  • The Drawing Canvas
  • The Toolbox
  • Palettes (There are five palettes by default)

The figure below shows each of these components similar to how they will appear on your screen.
