Here I want to briefly highlight a few interface changes which modify the way that we work with multiple documents and also how we view or see our photographs when we are working with them in the different screen modes. All right. Well, here you can see I have three documents open. I can access these by simply clicking on their tabs. Now by default, when you open up multiple documents in Photoshop, they open up in tabs, and that's fine. Yet, in the previous version of Photoshop, there was just little widget or this icon which allowed us to choose different arrange options.
And you as a photographer, being able to arrange or to view multiple images or documents at the same time is really important, especially if I'm combining multiple exposures or making a composite, bringing in different elements from different documents. Well, in order to access those same arrange controls, now what we have to do is to navigate to the Window pulldown menu. Here we can select Arrange. I'll go ahead and choose Tile All Vertically. This allows me to see these three documents.
If ever I want to consolidate this back to that tab view, well, you can navigate to the Window, choose Arrange, and then just select the option Consolidate All to Tabs. All right. Well, what about the different screen modes? Well, you can access your different screen modes by way of a shortcut or a menu. The menu is to go to the View pulldown menu, then choose Screen mode. And here we have three different modes, Standard or two Full Screen modes. We can also do this by pressing the F key. I want to highlight this, because if I go to the Full Screen View mode by pressing F, well, it's pretty different.
All of a sudden it's opened up much more screen real estate so that I can start to work on the image. In order to navigate out of the Full Screen View mode, you can always press Shift+F. That then takes you back to that previous view. And while these interface changes are small, I think it's helpful to get familiar with them so that you can more effectively work with your photographs.
